NEW YORK — Higher than anticipated off-price sales ate into Volcom’s fourth-quarter profits, though sales continued to rise, and the Costa Mesa., Calif.-based firm said it will continue to pursue growth through product diversification, international expansion and potential strategic acquisitions.
“Even with the challenges of an economic slowdown,” said Volcom president and CEO Richard Wolcott on a conference call, “we still managed to post solid results, launch a successful operation in Europe and strengthen our foundation for future growth.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
