Drieke Leenknegt is a Global Executive in marketing and management with the unique ability to bring creative and business worlds together. Drieke’s worldview comes from a 20-year career at Nike where she held leadership positions in Europe, China, and the U.S. in communications, product, marketing, and GM roles. She led a unique portfolio of collaborations for one of the worlds’ most dynamic brands by leveraging a distinct global network of innovators, creatives, influencers, and business leaders. Strategic and intuitive, she loves to create a vision and translate it into action by working with a diverse group of people.

In her own words: “At the heart of every successful collaboration and partnership within an organization, outside or everything in between, is a cross-pollination of thinking as the base of innovation. I am a strong advocate for diversity, not only of race and gender or age but also a diversity of thought. It allows your organization to move forward, to create new space and to sustain business growth.”
