Mark Murphy

Hospitality | Sports
President and CEO
Green Bay Packers | Green Bay

While a Super Bowl win may be the crowning achievement of an NFL executive’s career, Mark Murphy’s tenure has also been marked by significant developments off the field. The Titletown District, a mixed-use development that came to fruition under Murphy’s leadership, has transformed the area surrounding Lambeau Field into a hub for non-game-day tourism, entertainment, and the Packers’ partnership with tech giant Microsoft. During the season, the Packers wield major influence in Brown County and beyond, with each home game creating an estimated $15 million in economic impact.

Education: Bachelor’s, Colgate University; MBA, American University; J.D., Georgetown University

First job: “Painter for my high school’s maintenance department. I loved my boss. I learned that you could have fun while working.”

Toughest business challenge you’ve ever faced: “The death of our head coach at Northwestern (when he was athletic director) on the eve of the season. Had to hire a new head coach and keep the program running smoothly.”

Nonprofit cause that has special meaning to you: “The Journey to Adult Success House (JAS House). A home for foster kids who have aged out of the foster care system. My wife, Laurie, and I started it, seeing the challenges that our foster kids faced when they turned 18.”

What could make Wisconsin better: “Better train and airplane services.”
