Not that this warrants much shock, Mark Parker, Chief Executive Officer of company that serves as the backbone of the fastest growing fashion-based cultural phenomenon, was just named ‘The World’s Most Creative C.E.O.” by Fast Company Magazine. Mark Parker is the anti-Donald Trump, preferring to lurk behind the scenes while magically orchestrating the multi-billion dollar company while combing his full head of hair; in this feature, we get a look into Mark Parker’s most private quarters – his office – and you’ll see a room filled with organized clutter, like KAWS and Lil’ Penny figurines (among other priceless collectibles) and tons of original artwork. This collection reflects its owner’s insatiable appetite, one that will be the driving force for Nike Inc’s $27 Billion goal. If sneakerheadism was a religion, Mark Parker is the sun and the moon combined in one, so check out the segments of the article after the jump and pay your respects! via FRESHNESS.
