Sporting goods giant Nike has reshuffled the executives in charge of its Umbro and Converse brands in a move sparked by the retirement of Umbro president and CEO Jim Allaker.

Under the changes, Converse CEO Michael Spillane will become CEO and president of Umbro, the company said yesterday (20 May), while Hurley CEO Jim Calhoun, will step into his shoes at Converse.

They will both continue to report to Nike president of affiliates, Roger Wyett.

Wyett will serve as interim CEO of Hurley whilst the company searches for a successor.
