Nike CEO Mark Parker isn’t satisfied with being in charge of one of the biggest and most powerful brands in the world. The 60-year-old Chief Executive Officer of the Swoosh has joined Disney’s Board of Directors effective immediately.
“As CEO of Nike, Mark is widely recognized for driving the stellar growth of an industry-leading brand,” said Robert A. Iger, Disney’s chairman and CEO, in a news release. “His keen insight into consumers and his broad experience in international markets make him a great fit for the Disney Board.”
How does Parker feel about being a part of another one of the biggest brands/companies in the world?
“I’m honored to be named a director of Disney,” Parker said, in a news release. “For decades, Disney has delivered truly elevated consumer experiences globally, inspiring generations with creativity and vision. I look forward to working with this team as the company continues to set its sights on the future.”
Do you think this means we’ll be seeing Disney x Nike collaboration sneakers in the near future? Only time can tell.
