The Green Bay Packers will present three candidates for shareholder vote to join the Packers Board of Directors: Nancy Armbrust, Robyn Davis and Rob Gilson.
The candidate information was included in proxy information sent this month to more than 360,000 shareholders in advance of the Annual Meeting, set for 7 p.m., July 25, at Lambeau Field, the first evening gathering since meetings moved into the stadium. Armbrust, Davis and Gilson were approved by vote of the organization's Board of Directors at its quarterly meeting in May.
Armbrust is a retired Schreiber Foods executive and has served many nonprofits in the greater Green Bay community. Davis is the president and CEO of Brown County United Way. Gilson is the president and CEO of Imperial Supplies, a Green Bay distributor of maintenance parts and equipment for heavy-duty truck fleets.
"Nancy Armbrust, Robyn Davis and Rob Gilson are excellent candidates for our Board of Directors," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "I'm looking forward to the valuable expertise these three candidates will bring to the organization."
The Annual Meeting will also see Beverly French, George Kerwin and Mark McMullen take on emeritus status. French has been a member of the Board since 2006 and Kerwin since 2005. McMullen has been a member of the Board since 2007 and member of the Executive Committee and Treasurer since 2010.
"Mark has provided invaluable work for the organization for many years," said Murphy. "He's been instrumental in the financial stewardship of the Packers and we thank him for his service."
Proposed to succeed McMullen as Treasurer is Michael D. Simmer, President of BMO Harris Bank-Green Bay. Simmer has been a member of the Board since 2005, a member of the Executive Committee since 2017 and previously chaired the Investment and Audit Committees. Proposed to succeed Simmer as a Member at Large on the Executive Committee is John Skoug, a member of the Board since 2012 and chairman of the Audit Committee. The proposed changes will be taken up at the Board's August meeting.
Shareholders planning on attending the Annual Meeting July 25 will be issued four 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. Shareholders who receive their meeting information via standard mail will receive printed tickets in that same mailing.

Shareholders who are planning on staying over for the start of Training Camp, July 26, can plan to take part in the Packers Experience, a free event that celebrates 100 Seasons of Packers football.

The event spans four days, July 26-29, with more information available online at packers.com/100-seasons.
