“John's combination of executive leadership and expertise leading a global brand makes him an ideal addition to our board,” said Philip H. Knight, Nike founder and chairman. “We look forward to his contributions to expand Nike's position as the industry leader in innovation.”

Lechleiter was named president and chief executive officer of Lilly in April 2008 and became chairman of the board in January 2009. He served as president and chief operating officer of Lilly since 2005, when he also joined Lilly's board of directors.
