Superbowl champions Green Bay Packers executive Jason Wied is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team for “personal reasons.”

Wied, the Packers’ vice president of administration/general counsel, has played a leading role in recent plans to expand Lambeau Field and develop the surrounding areas, among several other significant projects.

Mark Murphy, president and CEO, said in press release: “Jason is going to take some time to take care of a personal matter. Our senior staff and leadership team will handle his duties during his absence.”

Wied, 39, joined the Packers in 2000 as staff counsel. He was named corporate council in 2001 and vice president of administration in 2007. He was one of three finalists for the president and CEO job for which Murphy was chosen in 2007.
