Why Nike Vietnam LLC?
NIKE IS A GROWTH COMPANY
It started with a handshake. Two visionaries, Bill Bowerman and his University of Oregon runner Phil Knight, thought they could do a better job of designing and selling shoes to runners. They were right. Today NIKE is the world’s leading innovator in athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories. The company's overalll growth has continued to be strong.
President and CEO Mark Parker said: “At NIKE, Inc. we run a complete offense, and it’s based on a core commitment to innovation. That’s how we stay opportunistic, serve the athlete, reward our shareholders, and continue to lead our industry.”
We believe a better world starts with sport. We won’t stop until every living, breathing person on this planet has access to sport, and we won’t stop making the best equipment to propel humanity forward without wrecking our global playground in the process.
Like human potential itself, there is no finish line. Things can and always do get better. Anyone can get involved, through actions both large and small. From research and development, to on-the-ground initiatives, to the act of playing sport itself - there are lots of ways to make the world better. Be a part of making a Better World.
