Burton today announced the departure of CEO Laurent Potdevin, who plans to pursue other opportunities after working at the world’s leading snowboard company for 15 years. Laurent will stay connected to Burton as a consultant and advisor to the company.

“Laurent and I have had a great 15 years together,” says Jake Burton Carpenter, Founder and Chairman of Burton Snowboards. “I support his decision to move on, and as a company we’ve always looked at change as an opportunity. This marks a new chapter for Burton during a time when snowboarding is gaining a lot of momentum.”

“What started as a Vermont leap-of-faith 15 years ago turned out to be one hell of a ride,” said Laurent Potdevin. “It’s been an incredibly fun, fast and productive time, which I truly enjoyed every day. From Jake on, the people at Burton are a powerful, inspiring and fun group, and I will miss that.”
