PRLog - Apr. 3, 2014 - VENTURA, Calif. -- The Workforce Investment Board (WIB) of Ventura County announced the addition of Mark Fegley to its board. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors officially appointed Fegley on March 25 for a three-year term. It also reappointed 10 current WIB board members.

         Fegley is supply chain senior vice president of Deckers Outdoor Corporation, an international company that designs, manufactures and markets seven brands of function-oriented footwear. It maintains three distribution centers in Ventura County.

         “Ventura County is very important to Deckers,” says Fegley. “Becoming a WIB board member gives Deckers and me a great opportunity to give back to the community.”

         Fegley sees the economy changing, and as the economy changes, so do the job skills needed by workers. “As a WIB board member, I’d like to help develop practical solutions on how we can marry skill development with job requirements,” says Fegley. He cites the digitization of Deckers shoe designs using 3-D printers and a Ventura College 3-D printing program. “There may be possible internship opportunities between the college and Deckers,” he says. “We have to find ways for kids coming out of school to be competitive in the labor market.”

         “Deckers Outdoor has a philosophy that is innovative, active, and community minded. Mark brings an enligntened, large-scale retailer perspective to the WIB board,” says Cheryl Moore, WIB executive director. “We look forward to understanding how the needs of a consumer products workforce align with local talent and educational opportunities.”

         The 10 current WIB members who were reappointed for another term are: Joan Baldarrama, vice president, administration, Lucix Corporation; Victor Dollar, senior regional manager, Brighton Management; Martel Fraser, labor relations/recorder, United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 770; Kimberly Nilsson, president and owner, Solid Waste Solutions, Inc.; Bernardo M. Perez, project manager, Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation; Hugh Ralston, president/CEO, Ventura County Community Foundation; Tony Skinner, business representative, Tri-Counties Building and Construction; Tavi Udrea, director, global training and development, Haas Automation, Inc.; Sandra Werner, director, human resources, Simi Valley Hospital; and Barry Zimmerman, director, Human Services Agency, County of Ventura.

         Members of the WIB include leaders from business, economic development, education, labor, government and community-based organizations.
