Brian Gutekunst

General Manager


  • Named the Packers' 10th general manager in team history on Jan. 8, 2018.
  • In his 24 seasons with the team, has helped lead the Packers to 16 playoff appearances, 12 division titles, six appearances in the NFC Championship Game and a Super Bowl title (XLV).
  • Built a roster that led Green Bay to three consecutive 13-win seasons (2019-21), three straight NFC North crowns and a pair of No. 1 seeds in the NFC (2020-21). It marked the first time in NFL history a team recorded three straight 13-win seasons and the 39 wins from 2019-21 are the most in franchise history over a three-season span.
  • Has acquired 13 players who have earned AP All-Pro honors, were named to the Pro Bowl or selected as alternates, or were named to the PFWA All-Rookie team.
  • In both 2021 and 2022, signed a veteran free agent that went on to earn first-team All-Pro honors from The Associated Press in their first season in a Green Bay uniform (LB De'Vondre Campbell in 2021, CB/KR Keisean Nixon in 2022).
  • His first pick as Packers general manager, CB Jaire Alexander, is a two-time AP second-team All-Pro selection (2020, 2022) and was named to the Pro Bowl in both of those seasons.
  • His first two drafts (2018-19) as Green Bay's general manager featured three players (Alexander, G/T Elgton Jenkins and S Darnell Savage) named to the PFWA All-Rookie team, one of only six NFL clubs to place three-plus offensive/defensive players on the All-Rookie teams in 2018-19.
  • Signed one of the most impactful free-agent classes in team history in 2019 (S Adrian Amos, LB Preston Smith, LB Za'Darius Smith and G/T Billy Turner). Za'Darius Smith was named to the Pro Bowl in 2019 and 2020 and earned second-team AP All-Pro honors in 2020, while Preston Smith (2019, 2022) and Amos (2019) were named Pro Bowl alternates.
  • Served as the Packers' director of player personnel for two seasons (2016-17) after working as Green Bay's director of college scouting for four seasons (2012-15). 
  • First joined the Packers in 1997 as a scouting intern before being hired full time in December 1998 as the East Coast scout; spent one year as a scouting assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1998.
  • Played two years of college football for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse before becoming an assistant coach for the team for his final two years at the school (1995-96) after a shoulder injury cut short his playing career.
