Sports Direct has hired Nike stalwart David Daly for its board and audit committee.
Before Daly retired in 2015, he worked for Nike for nearly 30 years, most recently as senior director of its club and federation business based in Amsterdam, which he held for four years.
He is also a non-executive director at Fulham FC.
Daly will join Sports Direct on 2 October.
Sports Direct chairman Keith Hellawell said: “[Daly] will bring very relevant industry expertise and experience to the board.”
Elsewhere, Sports Direct non-executive director Dave Singleton is stepping down from the board in September.
He has sat on the board for the past decade.
