Wyett Named Nike VP of Action Sports

12006744-LargeNike doesn’t seem afraid to shift things around and today they moved former VP of Action Sports Sandy Bodecker to work on “special project involving long-term production innovation” and pushed former Hurley President Roger Wyett (pictured left with Bob Hurley) into the VP of Action Sports job, according to a story on Oregon Live.

In addition, Nike announced that Jim Calhoun, chief executive of Converse Inc., will report directly to company Chief Executive Mark Parker. . . “Roger’s leadership over these important businesses will help continue to drive success for Nike,” Parker said. “I’d like to thank Sandy for his strong leadership over the last five years and look forward to his continued significant contributions to the company. . . Scott LeClair, vice president and general manager of Nike Skate and Nike Snow, will report to Wyett. Bob Hurley, currently the interim Hurley chief executive, will also remain in that position and will report to Wyett.

Maybe these moves are a result of recent reorganization on Nike surf vs. Hurley issue. Sounds like someone at Nike is continuing to put ducks in orderly rows for a change.
