  • Nike has made large investments to establish a more direct relationship with the consumers of its products through technology. During the course of my tenure, I was asked to oversee seven teams that represented the effort to shift to real-time data. From instrumentation and data capture, to data pipelines, infrastructure and personalization, the teams I lead provided the foundation to utilize real-time data. We provided the platform and tooling that enabled other teams. What we built resulted in millions of dollars in sales and savings throughout the entire organization.
