Rocky Brands announced that Mike Brooks, chairman of the board of directors and interim chief executive officer, has been named chief executive officer of the company. Brooks had been serving as the company’s interim chief executive officer since September 8, 2016, following the resignation of David Sharp as president and chief executive officer. In turn, the company’s board of directors has suspended its previously announced search for a new CEO.
