Packers' Tim Connolly to resign in February

Posted Dec 4, 2013

Will form sports consulting practice, serve Packers and pursue other opportunities

Tim Connolly, the Green Bay Packers’ vice president of sales and marketing for the past four seasons, will resign Feb. 1, 2014, and form a sports industry consulting practice, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy announced Wednesday.

Connolly, who will be returning to his home in Florida, will consult periodically with the Packers on various programs. His outside future projects will include work with both pro and college teams.

“The Packers are appreciative of Tim’s many contributions,” said Murphy. “He’s done an excellent job growing our local revenue, establishing record growth for four consecutive years. He also helped move the organization forward in many ways, including the establishment of the Packers Media Group and the completion of the South End Zone.

“We wish the best for Tim, including his future consulting practice, as well as the opportunity to spend more time with his family.”

Connolly, who joined the Packers in May of 2010, has provided strategic leadership for the organization’s overall marketing efforts and the Packers’ revenue-generating operations, including marketing and sponsorships, retail operations, ticketing, food and beverage operations, premium seating sales and service, Packers Hall of Fame and Stadium Tours, Packers Media Group, and stadium services.

Under Connolly’s leadership, the organization has enhanced the fan experience through upgrades to Lambeau Field’s sound, video and concession systems, use of the latest technology within departmental infrastructure and new and expanded content on Packers.com.

“I’m incredibly thankful for the experience of working for one of professional sports’ best organizations,” said Connolly. “Mark Murphy, the executive committee, board of directors and entire staff all have contributed toward a shared vision of success on and off the field. I’m proud to have been a part of such an excellent organization, and my wife and I have loved the experience of living in such a unique football community that is Green Bay, as well as the great, lifelong friends we’ve made.

“We’ve accomplished a lot and our teams are positioned well to serve our world-class football fans. I look forward to contributing in a new way, but also am excited about the next chapter in my life, which includes some exciting new projects. I also look forward to spending more time with my family, including my children and grandchildren.”

Connolly’s career includes 20 years of NFL experience, including 16 years with three teams – Jacksonville (2003-09), Minnesota (1998-99) and Kansas City (1989-95) – prior to joining Green Bay.
