Derek Sabori of The Underswell, Volcom’s Sustainability Advisor
Having spent more than 19 years working at Volcom, with the last 6 of those serving as the Vice President and/or Sr. Director of Sustainability, Derek is branching out to pursue a new challenge that takes his passion for sustainability beyond Volcom, to help more groups, organizations and personalities on their own journeys to sustainability.
It’s up to us now, as a company to truly adopt and embrace sustainability as a tenant of our business, as a core value, and as a brand differentiating opportunity. I’m looking forward to the further strengthening of what we will continue to call our New Future program, and welcome Derek in his new role and wish him the best as he starts a new chapter. –Todd Hymel, Volcom CEO
