Paul Baniel
Vice President of Finance and Administration

Biography

Paul Baniel is in his sixth year heading up the Green Bay Packers’ financial operations and is in his third year serving as vice president of administration for the organization.

In addition to leading the daily operation of the club’s finance, facility and information technology departments, Baniel represents the Packers at the NFL level on economic issues and leads strategic initiatives of the organization. He is integrally involved in Lambeau Field’s $312 million expansion project, drawing on his experience with major projects with the Milwaukee Brewers and Potawatomi Bingo Casino while in leadership roles in those organizations.

Baniel, a certified public accountant, also oversees the audit process and works closely with the organization’s treasurer, the Board of Directors’ audit and investment committees, and the stadium district.

“Paul is a valuable member of our senior staff,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “His experience in professional sports has been an important asset to the organization as both the team and the league have worked through some challenging economic times. We appreciate his strong leadership within the organization and the impact he has on our development efforts in and around Lambeau Field.”

Baniel (pronounced BAN-yel), who joined the Packers on July 30, 2009, moved to Green Bay from Milwaukee, where he had spent more than six years (2003-09) as the chief financial officer of Potawatomi Bingo Casino. At Potawatomi, he helped lead the planning and construction of a $240 million expansion of the facility, which opened in 2008.

Prior to that, Baniel worked 16 years for the Milwaukee Brewers from 1986 through 2002. He served as the team’s vice president of finance as well as treasurer and secretary for the final seven years of his tenure (1995-2002), coordinating the financing for the construction of Miller Park.

Baniel, 52, also worked for three years (1983-86) at the Milwaukee office of Price Waterhouse, a national public accounting firm, before joining the Brewers.

A Milwaukee native, Baniel graduated from Hamilton High School in nearby Sussex and earned his accounting degree with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1983. He earned his CPA certification that same year and is a member of several financial and accounting organizations, including Financial Executives International, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Institute of Management Accountants. In the community, he is chair of the board of Special Olympics Wisconsin, and a board member of New North.

Baniel was born Nov. 10, 1961. He and his wife, Nancy, reside in Green Bay and have four children: Nick, 24, Claire, 21, Mary, 20, and Abby, 18.

In his spare time, Baniel enjoys music, travel, golf, bicycling, rappelling (Special Olympics’ Lambeau Leap!) and spending time with friends and family.
