ANDY MOONEY LEAVING NIKE FOR DISNEY
NEW YORK — Andy Mooney, Nike’s top apparel executive, plans to leave the company next month after a 20-year run.
He will join the Walt Disney Co. as president of its consumer-products worldwide division, Disney said Monday in a statement.
Nike has not yet named a replacement for Mooney, whose last day will be Jan. 10, a Nike spokeswoman said. He could not be reached for comment.
In May, Mooney, who was also then chief marketing officer and vice president of global brand management, also took over the role of vice president of global apparel from Matt Wolff, who left the company.
Last month, Mooney relinquished some of his responsibilities to Ellen Turner, who joined Nike as chief marketing officer. In addition to Mooney’s replacement, Nike is looking for a vice president and creative director. That post has been vacant since July, when Gordon Thompson took over the same role at Cole Haan, a Nike subsidiary.
At Disney, Mooney succeeds Anne Osberg, who left the company Friday, according to a Disney spokeswoman.
