A second top Nike executive has left the sneaker maker amid a probe into inappropriate behavior. Jayme Martin, a 20-year veteran of the Beaverton, Ore., company, who was vice president and general manager of global categories, left the company on Thursday, a spokeswoman confirmed to The Post. One day earlier, Nike confirmed its No. 2 executive, Trevor Edwards, had resigned. Nike had no comment on Martin’s exit except to confirm he no longer worked at the company.
Toys ‘R’ Us said Thursday it was giving up its fight to stay alive, and that it was killed by vendors who failed to support the 70-year-old chain, by rivals whose predatory prices created a long string of losses, and by the media focus on its travails. Chief Executive David Brandon ticked off a long list of suspects, including Target, Walmart and Amazon. But a look at the actions and inactions of the once-mighty chain reveals the long-troubled retailer wasn’t murdered — it committed suicide.
A high-level Nike executive resigned on Thursday amid internal reports of inappropriate behavior at the company. Trevor Edwards, the Nike Brand president and a 25-year veteran of the athletic footwear and apparel company, stepped down immediately from his position, Chief Executive Mark Parker said in a memo to employees, a copy of which was obtained by The Post. Edwards was seen as a possible Parker successor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
