So, Phil Knight is finally hanging up his boots at Nike Inc, the company he founded in 1972 and helped grow into the world’s largest sportswear brand with revenues of $12.3 billion in fiscal 2004 and product sales in nearly 200 countries. They’ll be big boots to fill, but successor William D Perez, the company’s new president and chief executive officer seems to have a track record that’ll keep the momentum going. Over his 34-year career with multi-billion dollar global consumer products company SC Johnson, Perez has managed country, regional and worldwide operations and multiple brands. And he knows how to operate a highly socially responsible global business. He’s also a Nike-wearing marathon runner! See the company's press release below for a more detailed CV:
