K-Swiss Global Brands to move headquarters to Los Angeles
K-Swiss Global Brands (KSGB) announced on Wednesday plans to relocate its global headquarters to Los Angeles by January 1, 2017. The company is currently located in Westlake Village, CA and will move to the Pac Mutual Building in Downtown Los Angeles.
The new headquarters will be a campus with global offices, dedicated showrooms for each brand, a design facility, and amenities like a health club, bike spa, roof deck and communal working space. The state-of-the-art facility will house global operations for K-Swiss, Palladium, Supra and OTZ Shoes, as well as the American operations for Palladium and PLDM, which is based in Lyon, France.
KSGB is a division of Korean conglomerate E.Land Group. The division serves as E.Land’s base of operations in the US and EMEA, and it has offices in Toronto, Haarlem, Lyon, Sydney, Dongguan, Hong Kong and Taipei.
"As our organization grows, we feel there will be an intrinsic benefit to immersing in the progressive culture of Downtown Los Angeles," said KSGB Chairman and CEO, Truman Kim. "Our new location will afford us a better opportunity to identify market trends where they happen, access a vibrant retail culture, identify synergies with other brands in the space and lay the best possible foundation for our future."
Founded in 1980, E.Land is Korea’s first and largest integrated fashion and retail company. E.Land is comprised of over 60 affiliated entities, offers close to 200 brands and operates more than 1,000 stores worldwide.
