At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of adidas AG has extended the appointment of Chief Executive Officer Kasper Rorsted by another five years until July 31, 2026. Kasper Rorsted has been a member of the adidas Executive Board since August 2016, and the company’s Chief Executive Officer since October 2016.

“Kasper Rorsted has driven the implementation of our long-term strategy ‘Creating the New’ with great energy and success.
