2022 Green Bay Packers Annual Meeting of Shareholders
The Green Bay Packers will present four candidates for shareholder vote at July's Annual Meeting to join the Packers Board of Directors: Kate Burgess, Michael Daniels, Mark Rourke and Kurt Voss.
The candidate information will be included in proxy information being sent in June to more than 537,000 shareholders in advance of the Annual Meeting, set for Monday, July 25, at 11 a.m. in Lambeau Field. The four candidates were approved by vote of the organization's Board of Directors at its May 11 quarterly meeting.
Burgess is the CEO/Owner at Elevate97, a Green Bay-based branding and design business. Daniels is the President/CEO at Nicolet National Bank, which he co-founded in 2000. Rourke is the CEO and president of Schneider National, Inc., a premier provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services. Voss is the owner and CEO of AmeriLux International, a distributor of materials used for building and construction.
"We're looking forward to presenting these nominees for a vote of the shareholders," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "Each candidate brings a unique perspective and valuable experience that will be a big help to our Board. We're excited to welcome them to the organization."
The shareholders meeting also will see three members take on emeritus status: Rick Chernick (originally elected in 1998), Larry McCarren (2015) and Eric Torkelson (2019).
"We appreciate the contributions of each director during their time on the Board," Murphy said. "Rico has been a great asset during his 24-year tenure (and we've especially appreciated his unique sense of humor). Both Larry and Eric have provided valuable insight as former players and members of our community. Fortunately, Larry will continue his fine work as an employee of the organization."
Shareholders will be provided four Annual Meeting tickets for each Shareholder account, including accounts that have a joint or custodial registration. Shareholders receiving meeting materials electronically will be able to access print-at-home tickets upon voting their shares. New shareholders are reminded to look for their materials to arrive in the mail or electronically mid-June, whichever method they selected upon purchasing their shares, and are asked to vote their shares promptly.

Green Bay Packers Inc., has been a publicly owned, nonprofit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin's secretary of state.
One of the more remarkable business stories in American history, the Green Bay Packers organization has been kept viable by its shareholders — its unselfish fans. Even more incredible, the Packers have survived and thrived during the current era, permeated by free agency and the NFL salary cap.
The Packers' first five stock sales in their history took place in 1923, 1935, 1950, 1997 and 2011. The 2011 sale, with shares priced at $250, added more than 250,000 new shareholders and raised $67.4 million toward a new entrance tower and viewing platform in the north end zone and an expansion that added roughly 6,600 seats to the south end zone. That project was completed in 2013. The 1997 sale, with shares priced at $200, added 105,989 new shareholders and raised more than $24 million, which was used for the Lambeau Field redevelopment project completed in 2003.
The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven-member executive committee.
Shareholders do not receive any dividend on the investment.
