Effective August 31, adidas YEEZY GM Jon Wexler, known to many simply as Wex, stepped down and left the Three Stripes.
After 18 years with adidas, Wex formally called it quits. He officially was named YEEZY GM in November 2019 after spending over 10 years in their Entertainment and Influencer Marketing department and time before that in the Brand Communications department.
Wex took Instagram yesterday with a heartfelt post:
"My (combined) 18 years at /// have been the heart of my career.
As my role at adidas evolved, I tried to help the brand grow via innovative partnerships and transformative collaborations with the world’s most prolific creatives.
From the people who gave me my first opportunity here, to all of the incredible people I've had the pleasure of working with along the way, there are too many of you to thank - but know that I am deeply grateful for every one of you. I leave the brand with nothing but ❤️ for adidas and the entire extended adidas family.
Very excited for what the next chapter will bring!"
We wish Wex the best on the next phase of his career and can't wait to see what he does.
