The Wall Street Journal Details Nike CEO Mark Parker’s Daily Routine
Mark Parker is one of the most powerful executives in the world. He has been at the helm of Nike’s continued expansion to the tune of a 60% increase since he became CEO in 2006. It goes without saying that Parker’s days are filled with productivity, and if you ever wanted to know just what that entails, the Wall Street Journal has just run a very interesting piece following the man to and from work. Parker rises at 5am, exercises each day and makes it to the Beaverton campus just after 8. From there, it’s morning meetings, photos with visitors, inspecting samples, observing elite athletes in the research lab, working with Tinker Hatfield on a new round of HTM collabs, more photo ops and finally leaving for home at 7pm. It takes tremendous dedication to lead a brand known for performing at the highest level, and you can see more of Nike CEO Mark Parker’s daily life after the jump below.

Basically follows the same routine as I've read on Entrepreneur.com or Forbes.com how C.E.O.'s work to get stuff done.
The guy has powerful influence for sure no doubt. Can we at least do something for those sweatshop workers though? You can sponsor a nice campus or give the Ducks an amazing gym. At least consider working with the governments in making a better living conditions for these people who I know for sure are not lazy they know their fates. So at least give them a better housing and security, instead of having them be put in fear everyday by the secret police or mafia-backed sects. That's all we ask we like the shoes, but come on Nike give them better conditions or at least inform us that they are being treated correctly.
