Doug Houser’s long tenure at Bullivant is matched only by his time as Nike’s longest-serving board member, along with founder and Chairman of the Board, Phil Knight, beginning in 1965. His retirement from the Nike board and its three-person Executive Committee in September closes a chapter in the sportswear firm’s history that has seen enormous successes. But, that success was nearly cut short before the name “Nike” came to prominence. In this Oregonian story, Doug reveals some of the little known, but colorful anecdotes about Nike’s early days along with his deep respect and admiration for the company and his fellow board members.
