NIKE, Inc. announced that effective immediately Scott LeClair, 47, currently the Brand’s VP and GM of Nike Skate and Nike Snow, will become Nike’s new Vice President of Action Sports. He will be responsible for leading the category as well as for Hurley International, LLC. Nike veteran Roger Wyett, 56, who was previously in the role, has decided to retire.

LeClair joined Nike in 1992 and has led Nike’s skate and snow business since June 2012. He has held previous roles in North America and was GM of Nike’s West Territory based in Los Angeles, before moving to Japan to lead the running category and then the merchandising function. He will report to Jayme Martin, VP & GM of Global Categories.

“We’re very pleased that Scott will lead us forward. He is a proven leader with strong brand expertise and his deep knowledge of Action Sports will be instrumental as we continue to build our business globally,” said Martin.

“Roger is a tremendous leader and his impact over the years at Nike has been significant,” said Trevor Edwards, President of the Nike Brand.  “We wish him all the best in his retirement and want to thank him for all he has done to inspire our teams, drive strong business growth and consumer connections across our portfolio of brands around the world.”

Wyett was most recently responsible for the Nike Brand’s skateboarding and snow businesses, as well as Hurley. Wyett first joined Nike in 1994 and was part of the pioneering team that led Nike into the global football business. He has held a variety of roles, including CEO of Hurley, Vice President of Global Apparel and President of the Affiliates.
