Nike has promoted Noel Kinder to the role of chief sustainability officer.
Kinder, who has worked with Nike for 19 years, was most recently vice president for sustainable manufacturing and sourcing. He was also previously general manager of Nike’s operations in Vietnam.
He will report to Eric Sprunk, Nike’s chief operating officer and Tom Clarke, president of advanced innovation.
Kinder succeeds Hannah Jones, a 20-year Nike veteran, who after 14 years in the role will become president of Nike Valiant Labs.
Mark Parker, Nike chairman, president and chief executive said: “We have made incredible progress over the last decade, and I’m excited to see Noel build on the leadership and change Hannah has helped define.
“In this new area, Hannah will play an important role as we look to innovate and disrupt our own models in this next phase of our growth.”
