Cofounder of the brand Nixon watches the leading watch and lifestyle brand in action sports! In this episode we talk early days of snowboarding, t-bolting boards, Snow Summit and Big Bear, Nixon Watches, boat parties, Tony Hawk, Nixon Jib Fest, running and selling a successful business and so much more. Chad saw a gap in the market when it came to watches and with his partner Andy Laats started Nixon. Join us as we sit down with Chad and learn about his journey from working as an intern at Transworld Media to launching Nixon whose sale to Billabong in 2006 for a substantial amount of cash not only took some pressure off of Chad but put the brand in position to become the global juggernaut that is is today!
