Green Bay Packers pick Susan Finco for executive committee
The Green Bay Packers board of directors will vote on the recommendation of Susan Finco for the franchise's executive committee in August, according to Richard Ryman of Press-Gazette Media.
Finco is the owner of Leonard & Finco Public Relations and is now in line to become the executive committee's first female member, Press-Gazette Media reports. The retirement of lead director Larry Weyers created the vacancy for Finco on the seven-member committee.
"I really think a lot of Susan. She is talented and deserves this," Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy told Press-Gazette Media.
Murphy on why Finco was chosen: "obviously, for her experience on the board and in particular as chair of the community relations committee, her public relations work and even her broadcast work. We are in the news a lot. Broadcast is important."
As a member of the executive committee, Finco will now play a part in all of the team's non-football operation.
