BEAVERTON, OR: Nike vice-president of corporate communications Kirk Stewart has left the sportswear giant.
The eight-year stalwart - one of the architects of Nike's global CSR report, released this spring (PRWeek, 29 April) - said while he was retiring from the firm this month, he was not retiring from PR.
Stewart said 'the work I came to do has been done', pointing to attempts to boost Nike's reputation on how it treats its workers. 'We raised the bar on corporate transparency,' he added.
Stewart joined Nike in 1997, after formerly having been chairman and CEO at Manning, Selvage & Lee.
