A Green Bay Packers journalist has unveiled the likely successor to Mark Murphy as CEO and president in 2025. Drawing a parallel to the Packers’ successful quarterback succession plan from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers and now Rodgers to Jordan Love, it appears the organization is similarly preparing for a smooth transition in its leadership.

Since 2007, Mark Murphy has served as the president and CEO of the Packers, overseeing a period of significant success including a Super Bowl victory and consistent playoff appearances. However, with Murphy approaching the mandatory retirement age of 70, the team is making preparations for his replacement.

According to reports by Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, there is a strong belief within the Green Bay organization that Ed Policy will assume the roles of CEO and president in 2025. Policy, 53, brings a wealth of experience, having held positions in both the Arena Football League and the National Football League before joining the Packers in 2021 as vice president and general counsel, later being promoted to chief operating officer.

Appointing Policy as CEO would ensure continuity within the Packers’ leadership structure, akin to how general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur have operated under Murphy’s guidance. This move underscores the team’s commitment to maintaining stability and familiarity within its front office as it looks ahead to the future.
