The Denver Broncos Quietly Promote Some in the Organization
While the public didn’t know of this, the Denver Broncos have made some enhancements to the organization quietly.
With May continuing, NFL fans are looking for any news they can. Our friend at The Denver Post, Nicki Jhabvala, has helped us on this point with the Denver Broncos quietly enhancing the front office.
To most NFL fans, the team is only the players and coaches. However, NFL teams are like any other business.
For the most part, the Broncos’ roles have nothing to do with conventional football.
Mac Freeman has been with the Broncos for 17 years. In his new role, he is responsible for the Broncos’ commercial strategy and development.
Freeman will be fourth in command in the organization with his new job.
Patrick Smyth will be close behind him (sixth in command). In his new role, Smyth will handle the Broncos’ affairs in the community.
Nancy Svoboda’s job consists of developing strategic plans and policies. She will also hire, guide and evaluate executives in her department.
Chip Conway now reports to Denver Broncos CEO Joe Ellis and oversee the day-to-day operations of the team. He will support the growth and “bottom line” of the organization as well.
Brady Kellogg and Dennis Moore each have self-explanatory roles. In any event, there is more than meets the eye to an NFL team.
For an organization to be truly successful, everyone must fill their role spectacularly. As is the case in conventional “9 to 5” jobs, this requires a lot of punching the clock and red tape.
The Denver Broncos did make wise decisions on these points it appears. I particularly appreciate Freeman’s promotion. He brings extensive experience in diverse sports venues.

In any event, Broncos fans can rest assured that the franchise is in good hands both now and in the future.
With moves like these, it’s no wonder why the Denver Broncos are consistently considered among the best organizations in sports.
