Nike has announced that Cathleen Benko has been appointed to the company’s board of directors.
Benko is currently the vice chairman and managing principal of Deloitte LLP. Her addition to the U.S. sportswear firm's board is a result of her leadership and digital expertise, said Nike in a press release.
“Cathy’s proven leadership in advising the world’s most influential technology companies will be a tremendous benefit to Nike’s digital transformation," said Mark Parker, CEO of Nike.
A former leader in Deloitte’s ‘Digital Giants’ practice, Benko has guided several highly-respected global businesses in driving transformational efforts critical to creating shareholder value.
Appointed Deloitte Consulting’s first global e-business leader and subsequently serving as its technology sector leader, Benko helped position the firm’s services and capability development for the post-internet marketplace.
She subsequently went on to serve as Deloitte’s first chief talent officer where she devised a more agile and inclusive career development model. As the leader of Deloitte’s award-winning women’s initiative and broader inclusion focus, Benko has also led vanguard efforts that spurred innovation in diversity.
She is a graduate of Harvard Business School, and currently serves as a member of Catalyst’s Board of Advisors and chairs the HBS advisory council.
