Most recently Mr. Holiday, who has been a ZAGG Board member since 2012, served as CFO for Callaway Golf Company from 2000 until 2015, where he was instrumental in helping Callaway rebrand its name and lead a strategic transformation.

"I am pleased to welcome Brad to the ZAGG management team. As a result of his almost three years as a ZAGG board member, we know Brad is an outstanding leader and brings experience in all aspects of accounting and finance," stated Randy Hales, president and CEO of ZAGG. "In his role at ZAGG, we expect that Brad will expand the use of analytics to improve the company's performance, improve the rigor of cost management disciplines, and support our strategic growth objectives. In addition, his prior experience at large, multinational consumer retail companies will be particularly beneficial as we continue to expand our global distribution."
Mr. Holiday joined the ZAGG board of directors in August of 2012 and during his tenure served as the Audit Committee Chair. Effective July 13, 2015, Mr. Holiday will resign as chair and member of the Audit Committee and as a member of the Nominating and Governance Committee but will continue to serve on the Board of Directors until a replacement is appointed.
