PORTLAND, ORE—Veteran Nike communications veteran Lee Weinstein has left the sports and fitness company and will launch a public relations consultancy, Lee Weinstein & Associates, in Portland, Ore., and the Columbia Gorge.
Weinstein has directed a diverse portfolio of responsibilities at Nike including U.S. consumer PR, global corporate responsibility communications and, most recently, global employee communications. When he started there, Nike was a 2,000-person, $2 billion US company. Today it is a 28,000-person, $15 billion family of brands.
“My goal is to work with clients nationally and internationally, and to help Oregon companies and communities with their communications and public affairs challenges,” says Weinstein.
