NFL Looking For New CMO, With Mark Waller Changing Roles
Published August 26, 2014
Eric Grubman will focus on "critical league priorities, including stadium development, the return of a team presence to the Los Angeles area, the league’s strategic investment fund, and other key strategic initiatives," Goodell wrote. Grubman had been Exec VP/NFL Ventures & Business Operations. NFL Exec VP/Media and NFL Network President & COO Brian Rolapp adds consumer products to his oversight, according to the memo. Chris Halpin will be promoted to Senior VP and have responsibility for Consumer Products, the commissioner wrote.
The new CMO will oversee events. Previously, events reported to Grubman, who will continue to oversee the area until a new CMO is found. The NFL last week promoted Peter O'Reilly to Senior VP/Events, replacing Frank Supovitz. The memo also noted Jeff Miller, who runs security, is promoted to Senior VP.
