Jigx, the mobile application development SaaS based in Seattle, WA, announced that Eric Sprunk, former Nike COO, has been appointed to its Board of Directors. Sprunk is also an investor in the brand.

Sprunk, also a board member of General Mills and Bombardier, was Nike’s COO from 2013 until his retirement in August 2020. He was at Nike for 27 years.

“The mobile application market was valued at $187 Billion in 2021 and is expected to experience a 13.4 percent CAGR through 2030,” said Sprunk. “However, building applications has traditionally been laborious, time-intensive, and expensive. I am thrilled to join this group of talented, passionate people and take mobile application development to the next level.”
