Diplo wears his K•Swiss.
The DJ, producer, record label owner, industry icon, and entrepreneur has classified himself among the elite of cultural influencers. From school teacher to stardom, always thinking one step ahead has seen the Mad Decent founder form one of the biggest duos in dance music and close out Ultra Music Festival with Justin Bieber and Diddy.
Now the visionary is on a mission with Heritage American tennis brand K-Swiss to find the next generation of young entrepreneurs.
As Director of a 100-person board, Diplo is connecting creative individuals as part of a collaborative effort aimed at bringing the K-Swiss brand back to prominence.
Chief Marketing Officer Barney Waters recognizes what customers desire and knows Diplo is the man to deliver.
We believe that consumer aspirations have shifted. The goal has evolved beyond being the fastest runner or being a celebrity. Young people want their own brands, their own voice and their own businesses. K-Swiss is committed to outfitting and inspiring this generation of entrepreneurs.
We have created a program with substance, where our customers get involved in the process of rebuilding K-Swiss and make real contributions.
As a respected entrepreneur and global music talent, Diplo is the perfect leader for ‘The Board’.

Those selected will receive access to an exclusive website with Diplo and other industry leaders.
