Amy Montagne, VP, GM of global categories, said that the two "bring strong leadership, with deep business knowledge and experience in leading large, diverse teams.” Montagne added in her statement that, "Together, they will bring a passionate and innovative approach to their respective roles and help continue to accelerate our category offense.”

St. Clair has been with the company for 31 years. She has held senior leadership roles at Nike in North America, China, and emerging markets. Most recently she was vice president and general manager of field sports and specialty North America, and vice president and general manager of China's running business.

Garcia has been with Nike for 17 years. Most recently he was vice president of merchandising for global running. Previously he was a general manager for running in both Nike's Japan and Western Europe markets.

Both St. Clair and Garcia will report directly to Montagne, a 13-year Nike veteran herself who was only recently appointed to her role as VP, GM of global last month. Their positions are effective immediately.
