ATLANTA — Russ Hopcus has joined Icebreaker as president of its fast-growing U.S. company, starting May 15.
He succeeds Troy Ballard, who decided not to move to Icebreaker’s new U.S. headquarters in Portland, Ore., from Ketchum, Idaho, near his family’s home in Hailey, Idaho. Icebreaker began relocating its U.S. offices to Portland last year and that move is about 90 percent completed now. Icebreaker also opened its global apparel design studio in Portland and its first Icebreaker Touch_Lab retail store there in December 2007.
