Taking into account “his keen insight into consumers and his broad experience in international markets,” Nike CEO Mark Parker has been added to Disney’s board of directors, effective immediately. “I’m honored to be named a director of Disney,” Parker said, in a news release. “For decades, Disney has delivered truly elevated consumer experiences globally, inspiring generations with creativity and vision. I look forward to working with this team as the company continues to set its sights on the future.”
While Parker will stand for election, along with with other directors, at the company’s annual meeting on March 3, we can’t help but anticipate some Disney x Nike footwear collabs, a partnership typically dominated by Vans.
