Actions to become formal at July 24 Annual Meeting of Shareholders at Lambeau Field
The Green Bay Packers will present two candidates for shareholder vote to join the Packers Board of Directors.
The list of candidates was included in proxy information being sent beginning today to more than 363,000 shareholders in advance of the Annual Meeting, set for 11 a.m., July 24, at Lambeau Field. The candidates were approved by vote of the organization's Board of Directors at its quarterly meeting last month.
They are Gerald L. Ganoni, president of small business and specialty benefits, Humana, De Pere; and Craig S. Dickman, CEO/chief innovation officer, Breakthrough Fuel, Green Bay.
"The Packers are fortunate to have a Board of Directors with such diverse areas of expertise, and these two individuals will enhance that valuable resource," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "We look forward to their contributions to the organization at the Board level."
The shareholders meeting also will see George Hartmann take on emeritus status. Another director, Bryce Paup, will leave the Board, effective with the expiration of his term at the Annual Meeting, as he has moved out of state.
In addition to the Board vote, the meeting includes reports from President/CEO Mark Murphy and General Manager Ted Thompson, among others.
Shareholders this year will have the option of bringing one guest to the meeting. If the share or shares are held in a joint or custodial registration, such as a married couple or a custodian-minor registration, up to four admissions to the meeting can be requested: one admission each for the named shareholders, plus one guest for each.
In lieu of issuing tickets sent in a separate mailing, the organization will be utilizing barcoded tickets sent with the proxy information. Shareholders who plan to attend the meeting are asked to activate the appropriate number of ticket barcodes based on the number of attendees, and then bring activated tickets to the meeting at Lambeau Field. This efficient process furthers the sustainable-practices initiatives of the organization and saves resources.
At the conclusion of the meeting, shareholders and guests will be able to take self-guided tours of the newly expanded south end zone and the North Loft, the area that opened in 2012. Both areas will be open from 1 to 5 p.m.
