Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – The Jacksonville Jaguars have given
team president Mark Lamping a five-year contract extension.
Owner Shad Khan announced the extension Wednesday.
Since being hired for the position in February 2012, Lamping has overseen all
business operations for the Jaguars.
“Mark has impressively served the Jaguars and, by extension, the National
Football League since I introduced him as our new team president in early
2012,” Khan said. “Our business performance over the past three years has been
remarkable under Mark, and his commitment to the Jacksonville community has
been nothing short of spectacular. From growing our brand regionally and
internationally, to seeing through our emphasis on improving the game day
experience at EverBank Field and much more, Mark has done it all. We’re all
very fortunate to have Mark Lamping as our Jaguars team president today and
for many more years to come.”
In Jacksonville, Lamping has helped improve the in-game experience for fans at
EverBank Field. The Jaguars ranked in the top four of all eight categories in
the NFL’s Voice of the Fan Survey in 2014.
Before joining the Jaguars, Lamping had been president and CEO of MetLife
Stadium, home of the New York Giants and New York Jets. Prior to his stint at
MetLife, Lamping spent 13 years as president of the St. Louis Cardinals,
overseeing a team which won a World Series title in 2006.
