Mark King has led change in the sports business world for nearly forty years, creating a legacy of dynamism, prosperity and breaking through. From 2014-18, Mark served as president of adidas North America, turning around the stalled business and challenged environment into a brand and culture powerhouse. Under his leadership, adidas’ growth flourished as the company’s market share doubled in less than three years, the number of employees doubled and sales tripled. A leader in every sense of the word, Mark encouraged a creative and open-thinking environment for people to thrive, driving an industry-shattering retention rate, the highest employee net promoter score in the company and more than 500,000 job applications in one year. In 2018, adidas named Mark executive emeritus, recognizing his legacy and lasting impact on the company.
