The Green Bay Packers perfectly executed their succession plan at quarterback for the second time, going from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers then Rodgers to Jordan Love. Now, Green Bay appears poised to be the same at arguably its most important position in the organization.

Mark Murphy has been the president and CEO of the Pacers since 2007. Before landing in Green Bay, the New York native and former Super Bowl champion as a player with the Washington Commanders, served as athletic director at Colgate (1992-2003) and Northwestern (2003-’07).

With Murphy at the helm, the Packers became one of the NFL’s modern dynasties with a Super Bowl XLV championship and perennial playoff trips. As the franchise turns a new page with Love as the face of the team, Green Bay is preparing behind the scenes to replace Murphy.

Under team bylaws, Murphy must retire from his position after he turns 70 years old. Set to turn 69 in July, it appears Green Bay might already know who will succeed Murphy atop the organization hierarchy.

According to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, it’s a ‘widely held belief’ in Green Bay that Ed Policy will replace Murphy as the Packers CEO and team president in 2025.

Policy, 53, is a native of the Midwest. After graduating with degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Stanford University, he became a deputy commissioner and president for the Arena Football League (2001-’08). He followed that up with a stint as the AFL’s acting commission from 2008-’09.

He then transitioned to the National Football League, being hired as an NFL executive consultant in 2009. He only held that position for two seasons before Green Bay hired him in 2021 as vice president and general counsel. After serving in that position until 2018, Policy was promoted to chief operating officer.

Promoting Policy to CEO would help keep the Packers’ hierarchy well-structured for continuity. Just as general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur have reported to Murphy over the years, Policy is expected to fill that role in 2025 as Green Bay maintains its continuity and familiarity in the front office.
