Nike appoints new VP of global apparel


Nike has promoted Reenie Benziger to VP of its global apparel business. Benziger moves from her current role as VP/GM of global young athletes.

“Reenie’s deep consumer knowledge and experience in the global apparel industry will continue to position Nike as an innovative brand with consumers,” said Jeanne Jackson, president of product and merchandising.

Carl Grebert, a 17-year Nike veteran, replaces Benziger as VP/GM of global young athletes. Grebert most recently served as VP/GM of Nike Japan.

Nike has also added eBay president and CEO John Donahoe to its board of directors.

“John’s executive management experience in digital commerce, technology, strategic planning, and marketing for a global brand makes him an excellent addition to our board,” said Philip H. Knight, Nike co-founder and chairman. “We look forward to his contributions to expand Nike's position as the world’s leading athletic brand and industry innovator.”

Donahoe joined eBay in 2005 as president of eBay Marketplaces, responsible for eBay’s global e-commerce businesses, and was appointed president and CEO in 2008. He has also served on the eBay board of directors since 2008. Prior to joining eBay, he was the CEO and Worldwide Managing Director of Bain & Company from 1999 to 2005, and a managing director from 1982 to 1999. Donahoe also serves on the board of directors of Intel Corporation and is a member of the President’s Export Council.
