Hired in July 2014 for this newly created role with the team, Adam Korzun enters his seventh season as the director of performance nutrition with the Packers. He oversees all aspects of player nutrition, hydration and supplementation, as well as running Team Dining for the organization.
Korzun came to Green Bay after serving as the director of sports nutrition for the University of Oregon athletic department since August 2012, where he oversaw sports nutrition for all of the school's teams and athletes. Korzun was responsible for planning and creating an athlete training table operated independently by the athletic department. Under his direction, participation in the Ducks' training-table meals increased from three teams to 15 teams in just one year, and the program served more than 800 meals per day.
Early in his career, Korzun worked in different roles for Four Seasons Hotel-Boston (2000-02), Legal Seafoods (2001-07), Boston Medical Center (2004-06) and SNAP (Smart Nutrition Application and Practice) (2006-07).
In 2007, he started working as a sport dietitian for the United States Olympic Committee and implemented a performance-nutrition platform into training tables at several U.S. Olympic training centers. He also provided individual and team nutrition counseling and testing for athletes across all sporting disciplines while traveling domestically and internationally as part of the Olympic delegation.
In April 2009, he began focusing almost exclusively on the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, and in May 2010, he became the full-time high-performance dietitian for the association. During the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, he developed and implemented the Vancouver Chef program, which trained and placed a personal chef for each of the ski and snowboard teams. He traveled with all of the association's teams throughout the year during training and competition as a sport dietitian and chef.
Korzun graduated summa cum laude from Johnson & Wales University (Providence, R.I.) with a bachelor of science in culinary nutrition and an A.A.S. in culinary arts in 2003, and he earned a master of science in nutrition, with a focus on exercise physiology, from Boston University in 2004. He is also a registered dietitian and is board-certified as a specialist in sports dietetics.
Korzun has been a consultant for Red Bull High Performance, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cleveland Indians at various points during his career.
Born in Mobile, Ala., Korzun currently resides in Green Bay.
