Dansko Co-founder and CEO Mandy Cabot
named to Footwear News Power 100 List
Mandy Cabot moves to number 81 on the
2012 Power 100 list
West Grove, PA. November 12, 2012.
Dansko announced today that its co-founder and CEO Mandy Cabot has, for
the second consecutive year, been named to the Footwear News Power 100
list. Mandy joins a distinguished list
of designers, retailers and vendors on this year’s list. Selection of those on the Power 100 list is
made by the dedicated team at Footwear News.
They consider many factors including sales figures, earnings, store
openings, line launches, collaborations, market expansion and consumer buzz.
"I am deeply honored to be
named once again to this year’s Footwear News Power 100 list and to be included
among such talented individuals whose efforts have positively impacted the
footwear industry. I’m very proud of Dansko’s journey since its founding in
1990 and am looking forward to the continued growth and success of the brand,”
said Mandy Cabot, co-founder and CEO of Dansko.
2012 has been a landmark year
for Dansko in more ways than one. It
marks the third consecutive year of record breaking sales. It is also the year that the company went
from being partially to 100% employee owned.
This transition to 100% employee ownership ensures that the quality,
image, and culture of Dansko are in the hands of its primary caregivers and
stewards, its employees.
Said Cabot, "Peter and I
never started Dansko for the pot at the end of the rainbow. We started it because we believed that what
we could offer could significantly impact the very quality of life of our
customers, our employees, and the communities we’re a part of. Becoming 100% employee owned wasn’t our exit
strategy but our Succession Plan, a way to bridge continuity of the past with
our vision for the future.”
Last but definitely not least
is Dansko’s new state-of-the-art distribution center which is nearing
completion and due to be fully operational by the end of the year. Like the brand’s corporate headquarters in West Grove, PA,
the distribution center is on track to receive LEED® certification.
This fall, Cabot was also
honored as a ‘Woman of Distinction’ by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
