K-Swiss Global Brands (KSGB), a division of E.Land USA, has announced plans to relocate its global headquarters from Westlake Village, CA to the historic Pac Mutual Building in Downtown Los Angeles by January 1, 2017. The new state-of-the-art facility will house global operations for K-Swiss, Palladium, Supra and OTZ Shoes, and the Americas operations for Palladium and PLDM, whose headquarters are located in Lyon, France.
“As our organization grows, we feel there will be an intrinsic benefit to immersing in the progressive culture of Downtown Los Angeles,” said KSGB Chairman and CEO, Truman Kim. “Our new location will afford us a better opportunity to identify market trends where they happen, access a vibrant retail culture, identify synergies with other brands in the space and lay the best possible foundation for our future.”
Initial plans for the campus include global offices and dedicated showrooms for each brand, an innovative design facility and first class amenities including a health club, bike spa, roof deck and communal working space.
