GREEN BAY - Green Bay businessman Edward Martin has resigned from the Packers’ board of directors, including his seat on the executive committee.
In a release from the Packers, Martin cites the time demand of his growing flooring business, H.J. Martin & Son. Martin says he wants to be there for his employees and family.
"The Packers are an integral part of the community I grew up in, making it an honor and privilege to serve the organization for nearly a decade," said Martin in the release. "I've always said that if I couldn't give the Packers the commitment they deserved, it would be time to step away. Though now is that time, I'll still be supporting the team."
Martin was elected to the board in 2004 and elected to the executive committee in 2006.
"Ed has helped steer our organization through rapid development and growth during his tenure on the board," said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy in a release. "He devoted a lot of time to the Packers and we sincerely thank him for his efforts."
The Packers did not provide a timeline for naming a replacement.
