Trish Young is retiring after 33 years with Nike, most recently as VP, Strategic Enterprise Capabilities. Trish will continue as an AWESOME Advisor and join the Board of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) as a key liaison between AWESOME and CSCMP.
In announcing Trish’s retirement, Eric Sprunk, COO of Nike, said, “Trish has made a tremendous impact on the individuals and teams she’s worked with at our company and beyond. She has been a steadfast champion for people, with a deep passion for developing future leaders. Her role in establishing Nike’s leadership in the annual AWESOME (Achieving Women’s Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management and Education) Conference has been pivotal.”
Heather Sheehan, AWESOME Executive Director, described Trish as “a dedicated friend and an irreplaceable resource for AWESOME. She was one of the first to understand and embrace our mission of advancing women and transforming the future of supply chain leadership. We’re extremely grateful for everything Trish has done and thrilled she will continue to work with us.”
In addition to being one of the first Advisors to AWESOME, Trish was the co-host with Ann Drake, AWESOME Founder, of the 2016 Symposium, which was held at NIKE headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon – outside of Portland. She has participated as a moderator and panelist in other AWESOME events.
When asked to share her favorite Nike memories, Trish noted they all stem from her favorite Maxim, Win as a Team.
“All my best memories,” said Trish, “are of working with multiple teams around the globe, in different functions and different locations. We come together to solve challenges in serving our consumers, celebrate our wins and support our communities. That never gets old.”
