Weatherill named VP of Finance and Equity Partner at Bahne Skateboards
 
Longtime action-sports businessman and network television host Todd Weatherill has inked a deal with the classic and retro skateboard brand Bahne to become their VP of Finance, set up US distribution channels, and manage the brand's profitability and US Business Operations.
 
"Bahne has a strong brand name recognition among enthusiasts. My goal is to build on that recognition while protecting the brand at the grass-roots.  We are utilizing sustainable and renewable sources in the area, and will be supporting only US based, US manufactured materials.  While many of the other brands have gone off-shore and ruined our economy, we are doing to opposite...We are building a US-supported company throughout."
 
"Action Sports companies need to re-invest back in America to save our economy, our profits, and our environment. Tomorrow starts with what and where we buy today."
 
"This is a lifetime dream and I am looking forward to working with the Bahnes to make us one of the big players again," said Weatherill.
