Phil Knight's About

[]

Phil Knight is a co-founder of Nike, Inc., one of the world's leading athletic shoe and apparel manufacturers. He had previously served as the company's chairman and chief executive officer. Knight, who has been dubbed the most influential person in sports by Sports Illustrated, is neither a sportsman nor the owner of a sports team, yet he has had a huge impact on the world of sports. He had always enjoyed running and was a middle-distance runner while studying journalism at the University of Oregon (UO) in Eugene. He was undecided about his future as a college student and attempted a variety of professions before figuring out what he really wanted to accomplish. He worked as an assistant professor at Portland State University and served in the army for a period (PSU). It wasn't until he enrolled at Stanford Graduate School of Business that he realized what he wanted to do with his life. He came up with the idea for a sports shoe firm while working on a college assignment and thought he had found his calling. He linked up with Bill Bowerman, his former track coach, and the two began marketing Japanese-made running shoes in the United States. Eventually, their company grew into Nike, which is now one of the most well-known sportswear brands in the world.
