Jason Wied resigns from Packers

Posted Jan 6, 2012

Jason Wied, the Packers’ vice president of administration/general counsel, has resigned from the organization, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy announced Friday.

“Jason has been an integral part of the success the Packers organization has enjoyed over the past decade,” Murphy said. “He has served in key roles for the Packers on many projects, including the 2003 redevelopment of Lambeau Field and the current expansion to the stadium, as well as the development and construction of Ray Nitschke Field, the team’s training camp practice facility.

“Jason established good relations with community leaders which were very beneficial to the organization in many ways, including in the planning for potential development of the area around the stadium. His work with the Packers Board of Directors and on NFL matters was invaluable as well.”

A Green Bay native, Wied initially joined the Packers in 2000 as staff counsel and was named vice president of administration/corporate counsel in 2007 before being promoted to vice president of administration/general counsel in 2008. His duties also included overseeing the team’s administrative operations, community outreach, public relations and security departments.

“This was a difficult decision but the right one for me,” said Wied. “I’ve had some health issues, including sleep apnea and insomnia, for the last couple of years and have tried many treatments, herbal remedies, and medications. Recently I developed a dependency on one of the herbal remedies that had been suggested and my long-term health became a real concern.

“With the support of my wife, family and the Packers, I entered a treatment center on Nov. 7. While there I realized that I needed to make some changes and some tough choices – and I feel that moving on from my employment with the Packers will allow me to make the changes I need in my life right now.

“I consider myself fortunate to have worked here for 11 years. I’m very proud of what we accomplished and look forward to the continued success of the Packers on and off the field. As a fan and shareholder, I’ll continue to cheer the Packers on every Sunday with my family by my side.”

The Green Bay Premontre, UW-Madison and Marquette University Law School graduate is active in the community as a member of the boards of directors of the Business Bank, Greater Green Bay Branding Initiative-Better by the Bay and the Heritage Hill Foundation.

“The Packers are extremely grateful for the service Jason has provided to the organization, and wish the best to him and his family,” Murphy said.
