Nike Golf selects Nicolas Kettelhake as new Western Europe brand director
Nike Golf has announced the appointment of Nicolas Kettelhake to the position of Western Europe brand director, effective March 7.

Kettelhake replaces Daniel Schenk who has returned to Nike WHQ to lead the Nike Member Services function after two highly successful years in Hilversum.
Bringing with him 10 years’ marketing experience, three-and-a-half with Nike, multilingual Kettelhake has a significant track record of delivering iconic brand communication campaigns in both the Nike Football and Basketball categories across the WE geography, notably the “My Time is Now” European Championships 2012 campaign and the Mercurial Vapor CR7 boot initiative “Out of this World”. He is currently the Nike Western Europe brand communications director, a position he has held since February 2014.
“We are delighted to welcome Nick to the Nike Golf family, and given his proven ability in some of the most successful Nike categories of recent times, we are confident he will be able to continue our brand’s momentum in 2016 and beyond,” said Angus Moir, Nike Golf EMEA general manager.
“This is a hugely-exciting time for Nike Golf – Nick’s passion for the sport coupled with his impressive notable achievements within the organisation made him the outstanding candidate to take on the role,” added Moir.
“I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity at this stage of my career to lead the brand team for Nike Golf in our region, and I am excited to learn more about the industry and take on the challenges ahead,” said Kettelhake, who hails from Germany but now lives in Amsterdam with his wife and two young boys.
He graduated from Bournemouth University in 2004, and has since worked in the Netherlands, UK and Australia. Kettelhake will continue to be based in Hilversum at Nike’s European Headquarters.
