Nike exec has resigned after ties to son's sneaker business revealed

Ann Hebert, the sportswear giant’s vice president and general manager for North America, left her job after more than 25 years at Nike.

Her departure came four days after a Bloomberg Businessweek report detailed how her 19-year-old son, Joe Hebert, made hefty profits by buying coveted sneakers from Nike and other companies and reselling them on websites like StockX.

Her son got his start by flipping Supreme T-shirts in high school and went on to launch a company called West Coast Streetwear, which raked in as much as $600,000 in sales in a single month last year.

The teen also apparently had a little help from his mom — at least one of West Coast Streetwear’s American Express credit cards was set up in Ann Hebert’s name. The card was then used to buy limited-edition sneakers that he could resell at a higher price.

Why is this surprising, it is all down to connections and who you know.

This is literally how stores make a profit. Why did this cause her to quit her job?

This, but also people like this in the resale business use bots to bombard online shops as soon as they open and they’ll have them buy TONS of sneakers in seconds, so actual humans waiting for limited edition drops can never purchase pretty much. I know someone who did this with the new Playstations. They bought like 1,000 of them or something with bots, which only took a few seconds, and then flipped them for insane profits.
