Blog: Leonie BarrieOut in a swoosh

Leonie Barrie | 19 November 2004

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:
