US: Nike names Wyett to lead action sports
Sportswear giant Nike Inc is reshuffling some of its senior executives, putting Roger Wyett in charge of its action sports business.
Wyett, currently president of affiliates, will become the company's new vice president of action sports with responsibility for the Nike brand's skateboarding and snow businesses, as well as Hurley International.
Sandy Bodecker, the current VP of action sports at Nike, will now work on special projects involving long-term product innovation.
In addition, Jim Calhoun, CEO of Converse Inc, will now report directly to Mark Parker, Nike Inc president and CEO.
"Roger's leadership over these important businesses will help continue to drive success for Nike," Parker said.
Under the changes, Scott LeClair, VP and GM of Nike Skate and Nike Snow, will report to Wyett. Bob Hurley, currently the interim CEO of Hurley, will also remain in that position and will report to Wyett.
Wyett first joined Nike in 1994 and has held a variety of roles including CEO of Hurley and vice president of global apparel. He will report to Trevor Edwards, Nike's executive vice president of global brand & category management.
