Nixon, the watch and accessory brand from Encinitas, California, has promoted Nancy Dynan to the role of president. She takes over the position from Scott Kerslake, who has decided to pursue new opportunities outside the company. Kerslake joined Nixon in August 2017 from Prana, where he had been CEO since 2009.

Dynan also joined Nixon from Prana. Starting as vice president of marketing in 2018, she has since played a key role in the architecture of the brand’s future strategic plan as she rebuilt Nixon’s marketing and creative teams and focused digital marketing on the broader global consumer landscape. She has more than 25 years of experience with direct-to-consumer brands. Prior to joining Prana, Dynan led market-leading teams and strategies for brands such as Boden and L.L. Bean.
