Monique Matheson
EVP & Chief Human Resources Officer at Nike, INC

As NIKE, Inc.’s Chief Human Resources Officer and member of the executive leadership team, Monique (Mo) Matheson leads the company’s HR strategy at a time of business growth and transformation. Mo oversees a global team that manages work streams ranging from recruitment and succession planning to organizational effectiveness, learning and development, total rewards, culture, and diversity, equity and inclusion.
Mo leads through the lens of people. Under her leadership, Nike has reset its Human Resources function and invested in a dynamic, high-impact workforce to support a realignment in business strategy. As the company amplifies its digital advantage and widens its international reach, her expertise has been instrumental in mapping organizational capabilities, and enabling employees to feel inspired, challenged and supported to be their very best.
Cultural evolution has been central to Mo’s leadership. Since stepping into her current role in 2017, she has overseen a significant increase in employee engagement, leadership diversity, and alignment of policies and practices with Nike’s values. She continues to focus on attracting and retaining diverse talent, establishing Nike as a great place to work, and strengthening a culture that enables all employees to reach their full potential. 
Mo’s achievements range from building an engaged, capable and diverse workforce to
overseeing leadership transitions at the highest level. She has pioneered best practices in creating an internal development engine while recruiting external talent to maximize the company’s long-term talent pipeline. And, starting in 2019, Mo led a rigorous and disciplined process as part of a successful CEO transition – Nike’s first in nearly a decade and a half.
Since starting at Nike in 1998, Mo has worked across Nike’s HR function, including as VP, Chief Talent and Diversity Officer, and VP and HR Business Partner for North America, Global Product Creation (Footwear, Apparel and Equipment), and Global Functions and NIKE, Inc. Affiliates.
Prior to Nike, Mo practiced employment law. She is a proud alumna of the University of
Washington and Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law, and enjoys long dog walks,
traveling, and watching and playing sports with her wife and young-adult daughter and son.
