Jim Mercurio, Levi's Stadium
Vice president of stadium operations and general manager
Mercurio enters his 25th season with the San Francisco 49ers, which includes four years as director of stadium operations at Candlestick Park, the team’s home from 1971 to 2013. Under his leadership, Levi’s Stadium in its first three seasons — apart from 49ers games — has played host to Super Bowl 50, WrestleMania, the NHL Stadium Series and the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary tour. Mercurio was recently appointed to the NFL Stadium Security Directors Committee, a new group responsible for updating security policies across the league to guard against terrorist threats.
