Miller will assume the role Feb. 17. She has served as Nike’s vice president, corporate secretary and chief ethics and compliance officer for the past six years.
Miller joined Nike in 2007. In her current position, she oversees all corporate governance and external reporting matters for Nike and its subsidiaries; leads and guides Nike’s global ethics and compliance program; oversees legal support for Nike’s supply chain; and leads privacy, digital product, and technology matters.
Her prior roles at Nike included overseeing all legal work for North America geography as well as serving as vice president and general counsel at Converse.
“For more than 14 years, Ann has been a proven Nike leader who has made significant contributions to the company that helped extend our position as the world’s leading sports brand,” said Nike President and Chief Executive John Donahoe in a press release. “Ann’s combination of executive leadership, passion, and legal and business expertise makes her an ideal leader for such a critical role in the company.”
Miller succeeds Hilary Krane as general counsel. Krane has decided to retire this month after 12 years with the company.
