Nike CEO is stepping down but will remain executive chairman
Nike Inc. Chief Executive Mark Parker will hand the reins to former EBay Inc. head John Donahoe next year, entrusting an e-commerce veteran with the job of running a $40-billion shoe-and-apparel giant that’s increasingly relying on data and technology to keep its edge.
Donahoe will take the role of president and CEO at Nike on Jan. 13, with Parker remaining in charge of the board as executive chairman. Parker, who has been a Nike employee for 40 years, said in a memo to employees that he would remain closely involved with product design and marketing.
“To be clear, I’m not going anywhere,” he said. “I’m not sick. There are no issues I’m not sharing. I strongly believe the best way for us to evolve and grow as a company is to bring in a phenomenal talent to join our team who has long been part of the Nike family.”
Parker turns 65 next year, and succession has been a big question at Nike for years.
The decision to pick a leader outside Nike’s executive ranks followed a shake-up over misconduct last year and a controversy about doping in sport in recent weeks.
Trevor Edwards, once seen as a CEO candidate, abruptly stepped down last year amid a review of sexist behavior at the company. Other executives were ousted as the world’s largest athletic brand tried to burnish its image.
Three weeks ago, renowned track coach Alberto Salazar was banned from the sport for four years by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for running experiments with supplements and testosterone that were bankrolled and supported by Nike, along with possessing and trafficking testosterone. Nike announced that it was shutting down its elite Oregon Project running program overseen by Salazar in the wake of the scandal.
Documents released by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency showed that Parker was directly aware of an experiment committed by Salazar.
Parker, who joined the company in 1979 as a footwear designer, has been CEO since 2006. In 2017, he took a 70% compensation cut after a rough year for U.S. sales and the company’s stock price.
In Donahoe, Nike gets an executive who has served on its board since 2014 but also brings an outsider perspective.
He’s currently president and CEO of ServiceNow Inc. and chairman of PayPal Holdings Inc. Donahoe previously served as president and CEO of EBay and head of Bain & Co.
“I’ve been proud to be connected to Nike through my role on the board and now look forward to being a full-time member of the team,” Donahoe, 59, said in a statement.
Nike investors took the change in stride. After an initial dip and then a gain, the shares were little changed in extended trading on Tuesday. The stock was up 29% this year through the close.
Nike has felt pressure to show it’s more of a tech company than a shoe seller.
It recently unveiled its store of the future in New York, a retail experience full of new technology that can be unlocked only by members using the Nike app. The company also recently unveiled a new basketball shoe that tracks data on the user and whose laces can be tightened through the application.
This year, Nike purchased Boston-based data science firm Celect, a move that the company said would bolster its understanding of consumer patterns. That acquisition came a year after Nike bought Invertex Ltd., an Israeli computer vision start-up. That technology was eventually unveiled as the driver of Nike Fit, an expansion of the Nike app that lets customers measure their feet at home.
The common thread throughout all this is the Nike app. Nike members spend three times more at Nike.com than guests do, a metric that Nike executives attribute to the company’s ability to better serve those that they know the most about.
Nike’s rival Under Armour Inc. will also have a new leader in the new year. On the same day Nike made its announcement, Under Armour said founder Kevin Plank will step aside as CEO in January and be replaced by Chief Operating Officer Patrik Frisk.
Bloomberg and the Associated Press were used in compiled this report.
Nike’s new CEO is set to double down on the company’s success selling online. Here’s what analysts are saying about John Donahoe.
- Nike CEO Mark Parker is stepping down from his role and will be replaced by former eBay chief executive John Donahoe in January, the company announced Tuesday.
- Some analysts expressed initial confusion as to why Nike didn’t promote from within its ranks, yet many praised Donahoe’s experience leading digital businesses and his time on the sportswear brand’s board of directors.

- Watch Nike trade live here.
Nike CEO Mark Parker is stepping down from his role at the sportswear giant after leading it for 13 years, and his replacement is earning praise from Wall Street for his background in online sales.
John Donahoe will replace Parker in January after sitting on Nike’s board since 2014. Donahoe was eBay’s president and CEO from 2008 to 2015 and more recently served as chairman of PayPal. He is currently president and CEO of cloud-computing company ServiceNow.
“This is an exciting time for Nike where we see brand strength and momentum throughout the world and great opportunity for future growth,” Parker said in a statement.
He told Nike employees in an internal memo that he’s “not going anywhere,” according to Bloomberg, and will serve as executive chairman of Nike’s board of directors.

Nike traded at $92.90 per share at 1:44 p.m. ET Wednesday, up roughly 25% year-to-date.
The sportswear retailer has 24 “buy” ratings, nine “hold” ratings, and two “sell” ratings from analysts, with a consensus price target of $101.90, according to Bloomberg data.
Here’s what some analysts had to say Wednesday about the CEO announcement, and how Donahoe may push Nike higher in the age of e-commerce.
Needham: “A highly accomplished technology & software executive”
Pier Marco Tacca/Getty Images
Though Parker proved himself a successful CEO over his 13-year reign, Donahoe joins as “a highly accomplished technology & software executive” while Nike invests more in its online sales, Needham analyst Rick Patel wrote.
The sportswear brand told Needham that the combination of Donahoe as CEO and Parker as executive chairman makes for a “dream team.”
Donahoe’s past experience as a consultant and his support from Parker should also silence critics pointing out that the ex-eBay executive hasn’t led a branded company before, Patel said.
“Given the company didn’t promote operational leadership from within, we think that Nike intends to put even greater emphasis on its successful Digital efforts to engage consumers directly,” he added.
Needham maintains a “buy” rating and a $98 price target.
Wedbush: “Large sneakers to fill”
Shoshy Ciment/Business Insider
Momentum is strong as Nike stock brushes up against record highs, and Donahoe’s prior positions set him up to build on the company’s online efforts, Wedbush said.
“Mr. Donahoe appears to have strong leadership, digital, and NKE experience as Mr. Parker remaining helps ensure a smooth transition,” analysts Christopher Svezia and Paul Nawalany wrote.
The analysts also praised Donahoe’s work to improve Nike’s culture. They cited the sportswear company’s statements on social issues like climate change and gender inequality, as well as inclusivity efforts like plus-sizing, the Nike Pro Hijab, and para-sports.
Despite Parker setting a high bar, Donahoe has the résumé to keep shareholders happy and improve on the company’s successful new ventures, the analysts said.
“In the end, though Mr. Donahoe has large sneakers to fill in taking over this large, globally iconic brand, he appears to be a formidable choice to lead NKE and may help further accelerate its digital and general market dominance,” they wrote.
Wedbush maintains an “outperform” rating and a $100 price target.
Credit Suisse: “Nike remains one of our top picks”
Shoshy Ciment/Business Insider
The team of Credit Suisse analysts led by Michael Binetti initially wondered why Donahoe would leave ServiceNow and why Nike looked externally for a new chief executive. Yet following conversations with Nike, the team said they “don’t see significant reason for stock concern related to those questions.”
“Nike ran a detailed search both internally and externally, and prioritized a CEO with the skillset to execute the company’s significant digital transformation,” they wrote.
Credit Suisse praised Donahoe’s past roles at large digital firms, and deemed his years on Nike’s board as even more important to his transition into the top job. The new CEO is positioned to capitalize on recent innovations and will likely keep the company on its highly successful path, the analysts wrote.
“We don’t see any fundamental changes to Nike’s existing strategy or corporate priorities on the news of the CEO replacement,” they said. “Nike remains one of our top picks.”
Credit Suisse maintains an “outperform” rating and a $112 price target.
UBS: “One mild concern”

UBS analyst Jay Sole struck a slightly different tone, noting he had “one mild concern” about Nike’s selection.
“Mr. Donahoe lacks day-to-day experience as a CEO of a large athletic wear company,” Sole wrote.
He quickly softened the blow, noting the executive “didn’t have a strong background in enterprise software” before joining ServiceNow and has since helped build the brand.
Nike’s strong sales growth sets firm ground for the transition, and should continue “business as usual for Nike,” Sole wrote.
“The good news is Nike has made this move from a position of strength (sales trends remain robust) and set a plan for a smooth transition,” he said. “This increases the likelihood in our view Nike’s long history of strong EPS growth can continue into the out-years.”
UBS reiterated a “neutral” rating and $95 price target.
Nike’s Parker hands over CEO role to former eBay chief
By Nivedita Balu, Noor Zainab Hussain
(Reuters) – Nike Inc’s NKE.N long-time chief executive officer, Mark Parker, will step down next year and be replaced by board member and former eBay CEO John Donahoe, who will be tasked with strengthening the sportswear maker’s online strategy.

Donahoe, who has been on Nike’s board since 2014, will join the sneaker maker from cloud computing firm ServiceNow Inc NOW.N, where he was CEO for more than four years. Prior to that, he led online retailer eBay EBAY.O for the seven years through 2015.
Nike’s Parker had said last year he would remain CEO and chairman of the footwear maker beyond 2020, with his remarks coming in the midst of a series of executive departures and probes on workplace complaints.
The move comes days after the world’s biggest footwear maker shut down its Nike Oregon Project training group, following the recent four-year ban of the center’s founder and coach Alberto Salazar by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Nike did not give any reason for Parker’s exit from the top job. In an interview to CNBC, Parker said the change was unrelated to the Oregon Project or any other issues.
Parker joined Nike as one of its first footwear designers in 1979, and held several roles during his tenure at the company before taking charge as its top boss in 2006.
Credited with creating the popular Nike Air sneakers as well as other pioneering products, Parker, in the past few years, oversaw Nike’s shift to selling directly to customers online and its success in international markets, particularly China.
He will become Nike’s executive chairman and continue to lead the board after Donahoe takes over as CEO.
“We like that (Donahoe) comes from technology and that he comes from the digital space and we like that he is a strategist and a leader … things that have made Nike positive have been because of those sort of strengths,” Jane Hali & Associates analyst Jessica Ramirez said.
Nike’s digital revenue surged 35% in the last fiscal year, with the company expecting online sales to account for about a third of its business by 2023.
Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough said Donahoe’s e-commerce experience could help with Nike’s online push, while Parker could focus more on product development, one of his key strengths.
HITS AND MISSES
During Parker’s tenure, Nike’s stock surged more than nine-folds. They were marginally higher in extended trading on Tuesday.
Over the past year, however, Parker faced a number of speedbumps as he chased his target of $50 billion in annual sales. He apologised to staff last year after a series of workplace complaints at the company.
Nike also came under fire for featuring an ad with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who sparked a national controversy by kneeling during the national anthem.
“Nike has had their fair share of scandals and issues … and they didn’t really go out and look externally. It definitely seems like it could be part of” the Oregon scandal, Yarbrough said, referring to Parker’s departure.
Separately, ServiceNow said it appointed Bill McDermott as its CEO. McDermott helmed software maker SAP from 2014 until recently. ServiceNow shares fell about 16% on the news.
McDermott stood down earlier this month after a decade building up SAP SAPG. DE as the world’s leading enterprise software company, handing the task of completing its transition to cloud computing to new co-CEOs Jennifer Morgan and Christian Klein.
Earlier in the day, Nike rival Under Armour Inc UAA.N said its founder and CEO Kevin Plank would step down, giving his responsibilities to Patrik Frisk, a company insider, hoping a change in leadership will help battle brutal competition from Nike and Adidas in the United States.

90,000 Nike plans to reduce time to market for products to 10 days
Nike CEO Mark Parker and other senior executives at the company convinced shareholders that the new strategy would help Nike overcome the decline in sales.
One of the key aspects of Nike’s new strategy is to move production closer to North America, the company’s largest market. Nike currently manufactures most of its products in Asia, but the company has actively begun to relocate production to Latin America, where it is introducing modern automation technologies to reduce personnel costs and speed up production.
Nike’s COO Eric Sprunk spoke about the early results of a two-year partnership with manufacturing company Flex.Nike recently teamed up with Flex to launch a new shoe factory in Latin America that will ship 3 million pairs of sneakers to the US next year, and Nike and Flex plan to produce tens of millions of pairs in the region by 2023.
More than 1/4 of this volume will be the models produced taking into account the demand according to the accelerated model. Previously, the standard production cycle before the product was released to the market took 6 months, the direct path from production to the counter took 60 days, and now Nike intends to reduce this period to 10 days or less.
Tens of millions of pairs is a fairly small volume on a Nike scale, with plans to sell 1.3 billion pairs of shoes next year.
Similarly, Adidas is moving production closer to the consumer: in order to flexibly respond to changes in consumer demand in Europe, the company has launched a plant in Germany, in the American market – in Atlanta.
Analysts are wondering how the strategy of sea carriers, which is based on the maximum increase in the capacity of ships, correlates with the new trends that are being introduced by cargo owners.
Adidas and Nike intend to cut time-to-market by 6x by moving production closer to consumer markets. This will mean a reduction in the average travel distance of one container. And the shorter the distance, the less the savings from using large container ships.
However, in a recent study, McKinsey noted that shorter routes will serve 50,000 TEU container ships.
Andy Lane, a partner at analytical agency CTI Consultancy, disagreed with this prediction in his review for The Loadstar. According to his estimates, a ship with a capacity of 50 thousand TEU should carry an average of about 130 thousand containers in one round trip. Considering the capacity of today’s most advanced terminals, such a volume would mean that the vessel would spend at least 21 days at the berth, that is, three weeks per voyage. Moreover, on intercontinental routes, the flight lasts 4 weeks. But for regional routes no more than 2 weeks in length, the ratio becomes unprofitable.
