Five Ten Appoints New CFO

Published October 3, 2011

REDLANDS, CA (BRAIN)—Five Ten has appointed Wally Barker as its new chief financial officer.

His professional background includes serving as president and CFO of Quiksilver, Japan.

"Wally is a fantastic addition to our team," said Charles Cole, founder and president of Five Ten. "There are few people in the world who combine such passion for adventure and business. It is rare to find a person with such strong pedigrees in both climbing and business. We are proud and lucky to have him on board."

Dean Potter, Five Ten athlete and National Geographic 2011 Athlete of the Year, said, "Wally and I lived in the dirt together during my formative years. We rigged and tested early highlines. Barker opened my eyes to what's possible on the walls with his tenacious style. I can't think of a better fit for Five Ten."
