Crocs, Inc. and Its Chief Legal and Administrative Officer Honored as Silver Stevie® Award Winners in 2013 American Business Awards

NIWOT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Crocs, Inc. (NAS: CROX) , the global footwear leader known for bringing comfort to the world's feet, was presented with two Silver Stevie® Awards at the 11th Annual American Business Awards in Chicago on June 17, 2013. Crocs was honored with Silver Stevies for Company of the Year - Consumer Products - Durables and also saw chief legal and administrative officer Dan Hart receive the award for Human Resources Executive of the Year. Additionally, Crocs' Chief Product Officer, Dale Bathum, is also named as a finalist for the Stevie's Product Development Executive of the Year with winners announced this September.

"Both of these awards highlight the innovation and hard work of our global teams and the commitment of Dan Hart to help Crocs achieve the success we have experienced over the past 11 years," said John McCarvel, president and chief executive officer of Crocs. "The success of our business can be traced back to our more than 4,000 global employees, who are led by our accomplished and passionate executive team. They are truly deserving of this honor and I am grateful for their continued dedication to the success of Crocs."

As chief legal and administrative officer, Dan Hart oversees all legal and human resources functions for Crocs and its 4,500 employees in more than 90 countries. While Hart's accomplishments have been diverse and far-reaching during his tenure with Crocs, last year Crocs rolled out the most impactful human resources initiative to-date with the development and implementation of its global Talent Management Program (TMP). Although operating in a highly complex global environment posed challenges for developing a cohesive program, Hart recognized the value of designing a singular TMP infrastructure to serve all employees.

"At Crocs, we're working to provide employees with a clear line of sight to their achievement of business goals," said Hart. "It is important for us to help develop leaders from within and foster creative growth throughout the company."

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of Stevie Award categories. "This year's American Business Awards was outsized in every way," said Michael Gallagher, Stevie Awards founder and president. "More entries and more judges than ever before, and I'd have to say the most impressive collection of nominations we've ever received. We congratulate all of this year's Stevie winners for their outstanding work."
