Dave Quel will retire at the end of the month as president of Ecco USA. Klaus Flock, the chief financial officer of Ecco USA, will take over the job on an interim basis on Aug. 1 until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Quel joined the company in 1999 as territory manager. After moving up the ranks, he became acting president in March 2010 after the departure of Tom Nelson. His position was made permanent four months later.
