  • The CEO of Quiksilver's parent company is missing after his boat was found washed up on the southwest coast of France.
  • French authorities have launched a search operation.
  • Pierre Agnes is CEO of Boardriders, the company that owns Quiksilver.

The CEO of Quiksilver's parent company is missing after his boat was found washed up onshore on the southwest coast of France on Tuesday.

French authorities have launched a search operation and sent boats and helicopters to look for 54-year-old Pierre Agnes, Reuters reported.

Agnes had set out on his boat early in the morning but sent a message to port authorities later in the day to say that he would be delaying his return due to thick fog, according to Reuters.

His 36-foot sailboat was then found washed up on the coast near Biarritz.

Agnes is the CEO of Boardriders, the company that owns Quiksilver and Roxy.
