The Green Bay Packers are gearing up to find a new president and CEO following the conclusion of the 2024 season, as current CEO Mark Murphy is set to retire upon reaching the franchise’s mandatory retirement age of 70. The team has released a statement outlining their approach to the CEO search, which is expected to commence soon and undergo a thorough process before finalization.

Susan Finco, the Packers’ executive committee vice president and lead director, will spearhead the search, with Dan Ariens, the executive committee secretary and chair of the personnel and compensation committee, serving as vice chair. Several other members of the Packers organization have been chosen to join the search committee, collaborating with the national search firm Korn Ferry to identify top candidates for the role.

Acknowledging Murphy’s significant contributions to the organization, Finco expressed appreciation for his leadership and highlighted his achievements in various areas, including updating corporate leadership structures and enhancing the Packers’ presence in the community.

While the exact start date of the search remains undisclosed, it is presumed that the committee and the hired search firm have already initiated the preliminary stages of candidate identification. The Packers anticipate the process to last “six to nine months,” culminating in the presentation of the committee’s recommended candidate to the Board of Directors.

Following this, the incoming president and CEO will collaborate with Mark Murphy to ensure a seamless transition. Given the Packers’ success in the 2023 season, where they exceeded expectations by reaching the divisional round under the leadership of Jordan Love, continuity at the helm of the organization is deemed essential as they aim to build upon their achievements.

Green Bay fans are encouraged to remain patient as the team navigates through this transitional phase, hopeful for a positive outcome in the forthcoming decision-making process.
