Mark King |  Executive Emeritus of adidas, Former CEO of Taylor Made

A leader in every sense of the word, Mark encouraged a creative and open thinking environment for people to thrive, driving an industry-shattering retention rate, the highest employee net promoter score in the company and more than 500,000 job applications in one year. In 2018, adidas named Mark Executive Emeritus, recognizing his legacy and lasting impact on the company. 

Mark has led change in the sports business world for nearly forty years, creating a legacy of dynamism, prosperity and breaking through. From 2014 - 2018, Mark served as president of adidas North America, turning around the stalled business and challenged environment into a brand and culture powerhouse. Under his leadership, adidas' growth flourished as the company's market share doubled in less than three years, the number of employees doubled and sales tripled! 

During his keynote speech and following session, Mark will share his lessons in leadership. During this 90-minute session, you will learn how to make an impact in your daily lives and pick something you can win at - even if your goals previously seemed impossible. Mark will also teach you how to create the future you want to have by rewriting the playbook and changing the rules of the game.
