"Being SkateHut’s CEO means I get to work closely with all of our great departments. It’s been amazing to see SkateHut grow from selling from our garage at home to now being part of an awesome team of over 100 people. I really enjoy travelling for work and holidays. I have three sons which keeps me pretty busy. I also enjoy skiing and watching rugby, although not at the same time!"
"I'm a Director and help with the strategic plans of the company, I have 2 young children so don't get much spare time, but when I do, I like to eat food, play video games and watch films or sports!"
"I'm lucky enough to oversee the day-to-day running of the business. Basically, this means I am responsible for ensuring that SkateHut has the best possible working environment and processes. I get to stick my oar in everywhere! It's a pleasure working with all of our amazing teams on a daily basis."

My focus is to make sure that my team delivers a great experience, helping customers is really satisfying. There's never a dull moment!"
"As SkateHut's marketing manager, every day is different! My aim is to make sure that me and my amazing team are thinking of new & creative ways to keep our customers engaged in our brand. I love working in such a fun industry, although you won't find me getting on a skateboard or scooter myself, mainly for the safety of others!"
Brand Development Manager
"I develop new and existing business, across all fields of SkateHut. I enjoy searching for the next big thing, whether it’s this year's must-have gadget, the latest T-Shirt, or an up and coming sneaker brand."
SkateHut was established in 2007 by Mark Johansen-Berg following a family holiday to Florida with his wife and three sons. When his eldest son spotted a pair of Heelys in one of the theme parks, he just had to have a pair! Upon arriving back to the UK, they realised that Heelys were nowhere to be seen. Mark and his family decided to do something about it.
- Within a few months there were over a thousand pairs of Heelys in their house and from there, SkateHut was born!
We've grown a lot since then. We now stock skateboards, scooters, skates, bikes, clothing, footwear and just about anything else skate related! SkateHut now consists of three warehouses and three stores, with our original headquarters being based in Halesowen, West Midlands. You can find our other two stores located in Coventry City Centre and Adrenaline Alley Skatepark in Corby! Check them out here.
Family - SkateHut started as a family business and we pride ourselves on still being a family run business. We hope to provide products for you and your family every step of the way!
Quality - We always support a good quality product and our team are always on the lookout for more to bring to you!
Customer Service - Our customer service is one of the best in the industry. We intend to keep it this way.
