Description


Brand Manager, Nike Sportswear

Consumers today are more sophisticated and better educated than in any previous generation. They decide what they want and when they want it. At Nike, our challenge is to anticipate what they'll want and be ready with a solution. When we're really good, it's something -- a product, a service, a whatever -- that's so intuitively perfect the consumer hasn't even imagined it could exist. Your job? To make sure we know our consumers better than we know ourselves.

As our Nike Sportswear Brand Manager, you'll help lead the creation and execution of category and seasonal initiatives for our company that drive brand strength, fuel consumer demand and strengthen our connection with consumers. You'll be the voice of the NYC consumer and protector of the brand. You'll maintain a close relationship with key consumer groups and work closely with Sports Marketing, Event Marketing, North America / Global Marketing teams to identify influencers and stay current on market trends. You'll help lead the development of strategic marketing plans and briefs, as well as complete the field-work/research needed for the plans. You'll be instrumental in the gathering of information, communication and progress on initiatives and in leading categorical and seasonal event execution that ensures excellence with functional groups. You'll contribute to the East team's development of strategy, implementation and evaluation of plans for the categories, seasonal marketing initiatives and to the definition of NSW marketing strategies that support the broader brand plan. You'll also support the Integrated Marketing process and assist in leading processes that enable timely and effective execution by cross-functional teams. In addition, you'll meet regularly with Finance to track expenses against each assigned budget and work closely with the Inventory Management and Promo Planning team to place product buys and ensure the timely product delivery and program execution.
