Since 1992, our CEO and chairman Robert Greenberg (or “RG” as we lovingly call him) has transformed the word “Skechers” into a household name, a global powerhouse of brands for millions around the world. After a lifetime of incredible work, Footwear News honored the man this week with the Manolo Blahnik Lifetime Achievement Award, in tribute to everything that he’s achieved in the footwear industry.
Introduced by boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard for the award, Robert expressed his gratitude: “I want to thank Footwear News for their tremendous support through the years. Building this company has been a dream come true, and all of this would not be possible without the support of my family and the wonderful team I get to work with every day. I believe the brand has never looked better and the best is yet to come.”
We are so thrilled and proud of our chief for everything that he’s accomplished. Thank you, Robert, for your incredible vision – and for taking us on this thrilling ride for 23 years and counting. We can’t wait to see where you’ll take our brand next!
