Under his leadership, adidas’ market share doubled in less than three years, the number of employees doubled and sales tripled. In 2018, adidas named Mark executive emeritus, recognizing his legacy and lasting impact on the company. Mark joined adidas from a 34-year career at TaylorMade (then part of the adidas company). He was named president of TaylorMade in 1999 and CEO in 2002.
