Nike Company profile

History of the company

Named after the Greek goddess of victory, Nike was founded in 1964 by University of Oregon athletics coach Bill Bowerman, and athlete Phil Knight. Initially started as a sneaker distribution company under the name Blue Ribbon Sport (BRS), the company sold trainers out of the back of Bowerman’s car at athletics competitions. It soon progressed, and opened the first store was opened in 1967. A crucial moment came in 1971, when Nike first used the iconic Swoosh, designed by Carolyn Davidson. The name was changed from BRS to Nike in the same year. The Swoosh was later trademarked in 1974.

Nike Inc. also includes Hurley (purchased in May 2002), and Converse (purchased in 2003) as part of its subsidiaries.

Known for their remarkable marketing campaigns, Nike’s first was launched in 1976 with the tag line “There is no finish line”, and in fact featured no Nike product. This helped them them achieve 50% of the market share of US athletic shoe market by 1980. The now ubiquitous “Just Do It”, created by Dan Wieden, was chosen by Advertising Age as one of the five best ad slogans of the 20th century. Wieden+Kennedy, founded by the same Dan Wieden, remain Nike’s lead advertising agency, and continue to produce definitive advertising campaigns.

  • Indian National Cricket Team
  • Manchester City, Barcelona, and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) football teams
  • Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
