Philip Knight Net Worth $23 Billion
He’s best acknowledged as among the creators of the favorite brand, Nike, Inc., where he now serves as the chairman. This businessman was created as Philip Hampson “Phil” Knight on February 24, 1938 in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.. A year after, he graduated from the Stanford Business School. His visit to Japan led him to become among the richest guys on the planet these days. In Japan, he found the running shoes made by Onitsuka Co. to be of great quality yet low priced. He chose to establish a meeting together with the business owner and following the assembly, he could procure a deal that will give him the exclusive rights to distribute these products in the united states. To his surprise, Bowerman offered to be a partner and created designs for the products. And that was the beginning of the success of the Nike brand.
