Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy to retire, search begins for next leader

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy will retire in July of 2025. The team announced Wednesday, Feb. 7 details of the search process for the organization's next leader. 

Murphy, who has been the Packers president and CEO since 2007, will retire when he turns 70 -- the mandatory retirement age for the position as required by organizational by-laws.

According to a news release, Susan Finco, Packers executive committee vice president and lead director, is chairperson for the search committee of the Packers Board of Directors. Dan Ariens, executive committee secretary and chair of the personnel and compensation committee, is vice chair for the search committee.

“Mark’s contributions to the organization have been tremendous,” Finco said. “From updating the corporate leadership structure to growing and diversifying revenue to increasing the meaningful impact of the Packers in the community, Mark continues to position the Packers for success. We look forward to his insightful leadership in the next year and a half.”

In addition to Finco and Ariens, the Packers say the search committee is comprised of a diverse cross section of skills and industries represented on the board. 

The search is expected to take six to nine months. 

The final step of the process will be for the search committee to present its recommended candidate to the board of directors for a vote. The transition to the new president and CEO will then include a period of working alongside Murphy.
