Effective June 24, in her new role, Ogbechie will oversee all activities related to the global supply chain operations and logistics organization. She will equally become a member of the executive leadership team. 

Ogbechie’s promotion comes as David Lafitte has decided to step down from his role as chief operating officer. The supply chain functions currently reporting to Lafitte will now report to the chief supply chain officer, with other functions transitioning to other leaders on Deckers’ executive team.

Ogbechie will report directly to Dave Powers, chief executive officer and president of the Goleta, California-based company.

“Angela is perfectly suited for this new role, bringing the right mix of expertise and creativity from her 14 years working across all aspects of Deckers’ global supply chain operations,” said Powers. 

“Our logistics network was instrumental to our record-breaking success in fiscal 2022, and we expect it will continue to play a meaningful role in our overall operations moving forward. I’d like to thank David for his many years of service to Deckers, particularly his leadership in developing a world-class supply chain organization over his past seven years as COO. I am confident that Angela will pick up where he is leaving off and bring further innovation to our supply chain as we continue to drive growth for the business. I am excited for what is ahead and wish David the best in the next chapter of his career.”

Ogbechie has served in various operational roles at Deckers since 2008, most recently as SVP, global operations & supply chain strategy.

“I am honored to take on this new role, particularly at such an important time in the evolution of our supply chain and logistics network,” added Ogbechie. “While David leaves large shoes to fill, I look forward to working alongside the talented and dedicated Deckers team to support our continued growth.”
