10 Nov BRIEF: Nike executive moves from investor relations to Jordan Brand
Gavin Lindberg, Nike’s vice president of investor relations, will become vice president and chief financial officer of the Jordan Brand starting Monday.
In his new role, Lindberg will “work closely with the other members of the Jordan Brand leadership team to drive the strategic growth agenda for this important NIKE, Inc. brand,” Kelley Hall, Nike vice president of treasury and investor relations, wrote in an email Friday.
Lindberg began working for Nike in 2004, according to his LinkedIn profile, and has worked as senior financial manager of USA apparel, director of finance for the Americas region and chief financial officer of Nike Japan. He became vice president of investor relations two years ago.
“We expect to name Gavin’s successor shortly,” Hall wrote, adding that Kathy Strege, an investor relations director, and Maura Wick, an investor relations senior financial analyst, “will continue to provide outstanding support to our Investor Relations efforts.”
