|Coors began the search for a U.S. president a year ago.
Mr. van Paaschen was a vice president overseeing Nike operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He left the athletic apparel company last year. Previously, he held executive posts with the Walt Disney Co. and was a consultant for McKinsey & Co.
