Keen Footwear's new president, Mike Abbott, who had joined the company as its president at the beginning of July, has already left the company. The former chief executive officer of Specialized Bicycles and Burton Snowboards was going to fill a void left by the departure one year ago of James Curleigh, who then became president of the Levi's brand. Keen's founder and chief executive, Rory Fuerst, will continue to run the company, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
