Allbirds has been making some big moves as of late. Recently, they’ve opened a Portland office and reportedly poached Nike employees in the move. Allbirds is a global lifestyle brand that uses natural materials in its apparel and footwear. Now, Allbirds has announced a new member to its board of directors.
Ann Freeman worked with Nike for 26 years as Vice President and General Manager of North America, overseeing the notorious SNKRS app until March 2021. If the name sounds vaguely familiar, that is because Ann Freeman has been confirmed to be Ann Hebert. The latter indeed worked as Vice President and General Manager of North America. She found herself in hot water after it was revealed that her son Joe Hebert was running a sneaker resale business called West Coast Streetwear early last year. Freeman resigned from Nike last Spring after the revelations came to light.
