Disney has just announced that Nike president and CEO Mark Parker will join their board of directors effective immediately. In his role at Nike since 2006, the former Nike footwear designer has climbed the corporate ladder since 1979, combining his practical shoe design skills with management savvy. “As CEO of Nike, Mark is widely recognized for driving the stellar growth of an industry-leading brand,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement. “His keen insight into consumers and his broad experience in international markets make him a great fit for the Disney Board.” Now let's hope this also leads to more Nike x Disney collabs.
