Content Revenue Manager (Corporate Sales) - Green Bay Packers (CLOSED)
Updated: Aug 30, 2021
The Green Bay Packers, arguably the most storied franchise in the National Football League, were organized on Aug. 11, 1919, in the dingy second-floor editorial rooms of the old Green Bay Press-Gazette building, located on Cherry Street in downtown Green Bay. The franchise boasts the most championships ever won in the history of the NFL (13).
The Packers are the only publicly owned franchise in the NFL. Rather than being the property of an individual, partnership, or corporate entity, they are held as of 2016 by 360,760 stockholders. It is this broad-based community support and non-profit structure which has kept the team in Green Bay for over a century in spite of being the smallest market in all of North American professional sports.
In the summer of 2017, Titletown, a new community development just west of Lambeau Field in Green Bay opened. Titletown’s unique location is the perfect place for community members and visitors to play, stay, eat, relax and enjoy, no matter the season. Featuring a large public park with outdoor games, fitness activities and a winter skating rink and tubing hill in the heart of the action, Titletown also includes the four-diamond hotel Lodge Kohler, Bellin Health Titletown Sports Medicine and Orthopedics Clinic, and Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery.
