Peter Youell

Managing director, Skechers

It has been another stellar year for US footwear brand Skechers, which is led in the UK and Ireland by Peter Youell: record sales, a string of new store openings and being crowned Women’s Footwear Brand of the Year at the Drapers Footwear Awards.

In its latest quarterly results, for the three months to 30 September 2019, Skechers reported global sales of $1.35bn (£1.05bn). This was driven by a 21.9% increase in international sales, which now represent 58.8% of total sales.

The group has opened 37 stores worldwide this year, including the Skechers Kids Brand Experience store at Shanghai Disney Resort in October. It has more than 3,000 shops globally, and more than 75 in the UK and Ireland.
