Greg Hoffman

Founder, Modern Arena & Former Chief Marketing Officer, Nike

Greg Hoffman is a global brand leader, former NIKE Chief Marketing Officer, and founder and principal of the brand advisory group Modern Arena. Greg brought all of his brand experience to the world this year through his best-selling book Emotion by Design: Creative Leadership Lessons From a Life at Nike.

For 28 years, Greg held marketing, design, and innovation leadership roles at NIKE. During that time, he was a major strategic and creative influence for the brand during every major global sporting event, for the launches of NIKE’s signature innovations, and for the building of the brands of its athletes.

Greg oversaw NIKE’s brand communications and experiences as NIKE was solidifying its position as one of the preeminent brand storytellers of the modern era and the leading innovator in digital and physical brand experiences. His role in the rise of marketing and design through that period was recognized in 2015 when Fast Company named him one of the Most Creative People in Business. He’s also been recognized for his transformative leadership in the industry through Business Insider’s 50 Most Innovative CMOs and AdAge’s Power Players annual lists.

Through his leadership, Nike drove themes of equality, sustainability, and empowerment through sport in some of its most significant brand communications. That work was, in part, driven by his role on the Advisory Board of the NIKE Black Employee Network and as a member of the NIKE Foundation Board of Directors.

Today as founder and principal of Modern Arena, Greg advises Fortune 500 brands, startups, and nonprofits on creating brand strength, business growth, and social impact. He delivers keynotes to teams at brands ranging from Apple, Google, and Netflix, to Lego, Target, and Meta, on how to build stronger emotional bonds through branding and creativity.
