Profile Angel Martinez ’77

T

o many people, UGG Australia, Teva, Sanuk, Mozo, Ahnu and Tsubo are all well-known footwear brands. What is less well-known, is that it is Aggie alum ANGEL MARTINEZ ’77 who is the president and chief executive officer at Deckers Outdoor Corporation, the company that designs, manufactures and markets these shoes that are all meant for highperformance outdoor sports and recreational activities. Before this, Angel was the chief marketing officer for another well-known brand, Reebok International. From a young age, Angel recalls being competitive. He focused this drive to compete in the sport of running. “Running was fantastic,” Angel says. “You could improve directly and proportionately to how much work you put in.” It was a combination of his love of running and the crosscountry program at UC Davis that led him to the Aggie campus. As he continued with running and staying active in the Aggie Running Club, he realized that there was a direct relationship between the number of injuries he was getting and the kind of shoes he was wearing. This realization transformed Angel’s love of running into a love for

I’ve always been incredibly proud of being an Aggie. For me, I can’t think of a better institution in the world.” marketing and designing running shoes. “Who would have thought a passion for running would lead to a career in footwear? But it did because it was my passion,” Angel states. While at UC Davis, Angel majored in rhetoric. Once he discovered his enthusiasm for marketing shoes, he did not let all that he learned from his major go to waste. “I didn’t attend UC Davis to get a job. My goal was to learn how to think and develop intellectual discipline,” he says. For Angel, rhetoric turned out to be the perfect major. He has found that marketing is the rhetoric of the business world, honing the ability to influence people through communications whether it is oral, written or through images and symbols. Angel no longer runs for competition, but he still keeps himself plenty busy.

UC Davis alum ANGEL MARTINEZ ’77. After retiring once, he found that the retired life was not what he wanted. “I got a break. That’s what I needed. Then I realized that I loved what I was doing,” he recalls. Now back at what he loves doing, Angel has no plans to slow down. Although he does not often have the chance

to make it back to campus, he never forgets the impact UC Davis had on his life. “I’ve always been incredibly proud of being an Aggie,” he says. “For me, I can’t think of a better institution in the world.”

career and lifestyle cannot be separated. As the vice president and a senior investment management consultant with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and founder of Andis Wines, Janis describes the wine industry as a competitive business, but also says, “It’s a lifestyle that involves meeting wonderful people, eating wonderful food and, of course, drinking wonderful wine.” “Success in any business starts with passion,” Janis states. It is for this reason that Janis decided to initially pursue the financial services business. “I absolutely love that I can help people make the right decisions about their money,” she explains. With Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, she has many responsibilities including upholding quality assurance for all transactions and managing client development and wealth advisory services. As founder of Andis Wines, she directs the operational and philanthropic activities, contributes to the marketing work and sits on the tasting/ blending panel. “Our goal at Andis Wines is to build the brand by consistently making the most delicious wines,” she says. “As a

university program or area of their choosing. “This is the type of program Charlie would have supported,” Mike Child stated after receiving the award in May. Mike and Renée’s dedication to philanthropic support has included an endowed scholarship fund to support students at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, an endowed research fund at the Center for Mind and Brain, support for current research in the College of Engineering’s Engineering Translation Technology Center and a $5 million commitment to establish the Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The gift marks one of the latest accolades on We Are Aggie Pride’s list of achievements. Since its launch in February, this philanthropy program has received numerous donations from students as well as alumni. With the purpose of the program to inspire undergraduates to give back, it also emphasizes the need for students to take the continuously increasing cost of tuition and living expenses into their own hands. When making a gift to the Students Helping Students Fund, these contributions go directly back to students in need. Recently, the philanthropic project was forwarded by

Chancellor Linda Katehi for the UC Office of the President Awards Program. We Are Aggie Pride has received over 60 applications so far and has granted over $16,500 in awards. “We Are Aggie Pride is off to a great start,” says Zena Brown ’12, director of the program. “We have come to realize that the need on our campus is much greater than we expected. Donations right now are crucial so that we can keep helping students.” If you would like to read more about We Are Aggie Pride or make a gift, please visit http://weareaggie pride.ucdavis.edu.
