Anthony Watson, the Chief Information Officer at Nike, has left the company.

The reason why Watson left his position after only 10 months is unclear, according to Business Insider.

Before his departure from Nike, Watson was the only openly gay CIO of a Fortune 100 company. He was recently featured in Fortune’s “40 Under 40” next to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Born in Britain, Watson is the only non-U.S. citizen board member of the LGBT rights advocacy group GLAAD.

Before accepting a position with Nike earlier this year, Watson was the managing director, CIO of global operations for Barclays Bank’s retail and business banking in Europe and the Middle East.
