The sportswear brand has promoted Heidi O’Neill to the position of president of consumer and marketplace from her present role of president of Nike Direct. Due to take up her new appointment on 1 April, she will succeed Elliott Hill who is retiring from Nike.
In a further move, Nike chief financial officer Andy Campion will become chief operating officer on the same date. He will replace Eric Sprunk who is also retiring from his role.
In addition, Matthew Friend will become Nike’s new chief financial officer. He is currently working as the brand’s chief financial officer of operating segments and vice president of investor relations.
Meanwhile, both Hill and Sprunk will remain with Nike until later this year.
John Donahoe, president and chief executive of Nike, said: “I am delighted to announce a series of leadership changes today which set up the company for continued growth and demonstrate the strength of the Nike management bench
“Heidi and Andy’s leadership has been instrumental in both evolving and driving Nike’s strategy over the last decade. In their new roles, we will see them have even greater impact on Nike’s success in the future. Matthew brings more than ten years of Nike experience to the CFO role and will be a great addition to our executive leadership team.”
