Nike Hires Top Designer from Under Armour
After joining Under Armour in 2010, Dombrow worked his way up to senior vice president of design; in that role, he led the company in some of its most high-profile projects, including the signature product lines for NBA MVP Stephen Curry and NFL MVP Cam Newton.
According to Nice Kicks, Under Armour’s shoe sales were up 95% to close out the fourth quarter of 2015, and the move by Nike is intended to reverse that trend.
Because of an industry non-compete clause, Dombrow is expected to take a year off and begin working at Nike in 2017. — J.B.
