Todd Klein, who was Director of Sports Marketing/Running for Reebok since 2004, has left Reebok, and is returning to adidas in the role of Business Unit Director for Global Running Apparel.
Todd Klein was the champion of the Reebok Boston Indoor Games and the Reebok Grand Prix, held on Randalls Island. This years Reebok Grand Prix had a sell out crowd, and one of the best competitions in North America in recent years. Under his direction, Reebok focused on up and coming athletes, including Olympic bronze medalist Nick Willis, from New Zealand and Olympic champion Steve Hooker, from Australia. Reebok also sponsored the two largest prep cross country events in North America: the Manhattan Invitational and the Mt. Sac invitational.
In speaking to Todd last week, he made it quite clear that he would miss his friends, the athletes and the events, but he felt that he has left Reebok athletics in the able hands of Patrick Joyce and Jennifer Thomas. We wish Todd well in his new adventure.
