(Reuters) - (This version of April 18 story corrects to show Greg Thompson was vice president of Express Lane Footwear, not vice president of footwear, in headline and first paragraph. Also corrects to show Antoine Andrews left last week, not earlier this week in second paragraph)

Nike Inc's NKE.N vice president of Express Lane Footwear, Greg Thompson, has left the company, a company spokesman said on Wednesday, the latest in a string of executive departures at the sportswear maker.

Nike’s vice president of diversity and inclusion, Antoine Andrews, left last week. Trevor Edwards, president of Nike’s namesake brand, resigned last month, followed by the exit of another vice president Jayme Martin.

Nike, at the time of Edwards’ exit, said there had been “conduct inconsistent with Nike’s core values and against our code of conduct,” but added that there was no direct allegations of misconduct against Edwards. Edwards is continuing as an adviser to Nike CEO until he retires in August.
