Despite being reported to Nike’s Loss Prevention team on multiple occasions, sources told the outlet that his actions were never investigated, given his ties to upper management.
Ann Hebert, who held the title of vice president and general manager of Nike’s North America division, stepped down earlier this month for an undisclosed reason. At the time of her employment, sources told the outlet that their concerns over her son's actions were "just going to fall on deaf ears.”
Ann Hebert officially departed from the company at the beginning of March, just six days after a Bloomberg Businessweek report that revealed the details of her 19-year-old son's business.
