The move, which will happen later this month, will see Nike’s Western Europe comms director Charlie Brooks relocating to London from the firm's EMEA head office in the Netherlands.

Also moving across to London are senior PR and communications managers Carolyn Small and Gavin Thomas. The Western Europe team will work alongside Nike’s UK & Ireland team, led by head of PR and corporate comms Leo Sandino-Taylor.

Meanwhile, Claire Parnell will be joining Nike UK as PR manager focusing on football and running. She joins next month from Hill & Knowlton, reporting into Sandino-Taylor and working alongside UK PR manager Jo Taylor (Women’s Training & Nike Sportswear) and UK PR executive Simon Wainwright.

Nike UK continues to use Freud Communications and Exposure for its UK & Ireland focused work.
