Nike Inc. said in a regulatory filing that John Connors, on October 27, notified the company of his decision to retire as a director of the company effective December 31, 2021.

Connors’s decision to retire “is not because of a disagreement with the company or its Board of Directors on any matter relating to the company’s operations, policies or practices.”

“John is a distinguished veteran of the tech industry and has been an integral part of the company’s board for over 15 years,” said Mark Parker, executive chairman, Nike. “His contributions to the company are significant and long-lasting. We thank him for his service and wish him well as he pursues other endeavors.”

Connors, former senior vice president, finance and administration, and chief financial officer, Microsoft Corp., joined Nike’s board in 2005.
