Top Nike executive resigns amid workplace complaints

SPORTSGEAR maker Nike yesterday announced the surprise departure of top executive Trevor Edwards, who was considered a potential successor to the firm's chief executive.

"There had been conduct inconsistent with Nike's principles and we are taking the appropriate actions", spokesman Greg Rossiter said by phone.

Trevor Edwards is leaving his post as president of Nike's namesake brand, although the company says there have been no direct allegations against him.

He squared up and buried a attractive left-handed jumper for one of the biggest shots in Dallas since the days of J.R. The final play was Ingram's buzzer-beating three-pointer. "He blessed me, being able to coach resilient kids ".

Nike's second-highest ranked executive has resigned, The Wall Street Journal reports. A leaked letter to employees said Edwards would resign following complaints.

"This has been a very hard time", it quoted Parker as saying. The Journal said Nike told employees it would review how it handles internal complaints after hearing from "strong and courageous employees". Trevor has made a decision to retire.

This week, Parker has committed to remaining as chairman, president and CEO of Nike beyond 2020. Michael Spillane is keeping the current role of Head of Categories, Design, Product and Merchandising at Nike, but will also now report directly to Parker. Another executive, Elliott Hill, was elevated to the role of overseeing the consumer and marketplace division as part of Thursday's announcement. In this role, he will be responsible for Marketing, Geographies, Nike Direct and Global Sales.

I'd like to thank Nike for his significant contributions to Nike over the last 25 years. In the new structure, both Hill and Spillane will report directly to Parker.

"He has helped us grow and strengthen our brand on a global scale", Parker said.
