Phil Hendrickson, a former Packers Executive Committee Treasurer and longtime member of the Board of Directors, died earlier this week at the age of 97.
"Phil was a great supporter of the Packers and an important member of the Packers family for many years," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "His experience was a valuable asset to the Packers Board of Directors and Executive committee for more than three decades, and we are grateful for his contributions.
"Our condolences go out to his family."
Hendrickson was first elected to the Packers Board of Directors in 1975. Subsequently elected to the Executive Committee in 1982, he became Treasurer in 1984, serving in that role until 1990. He continued as a member of the Board for the next 20 years, before becoming Director Emeritus in 2011.
Former Packers President/CEO Bob Harlan credited Hendrickson's financial acumen as a key component to his role on the Executive Committee.
"Phil was a great asset for the organization, particularly with his expertise in financial matters as the business of the NFL was beginning to really grow in the 1980s," said Harlan. "His knowledge in the investments area was also a great benefit to the organization and how we positioned ourselves for the future."
