BIOGRAPHY

BUILDING A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM

As chief executive officer of the San Francisco 49ers, Jed York oversees all aspects of the organization. York is in his fourth year in the position and has made bold decisions to return the team to its winning tradition and ultimately the Super Bowl. York recognizes and shares the ongoing passion of the team’s faithful fans.

York has been a driving force behind the 49ers recent success on and off the field. Many now point to 2011 as a significant year in the history of the storied franchise, as he led the organization through a year of great change and prosperity. York’s promotion of Trent Baalke to general manager, and the hiring of Jim Harbaugh as head coach, set the wheels in motion for the team’s resurgence on the field. The team has won back-to-back NFC West Division titles, advanced to two NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl, while posting a 27-9-1 overall record.

In the boardroom, York’s strong leadership has produced extraordinary results. On April 19, 2012, the 49ers and the Santa Clara Stadium Authority broke ground a year ahead of schedule on the team’s new home, Levi’s® Stadium, after securing a construction loan and $200 million in NFL support. Since that time, the 49ers have built on the momentum, securing favorable long-term financing and a naming rights partnership that is a “perfect fit” for the venue.

RECOGNIZING THE 49ERS FAITHFUL

A 49ers fan since birth, York recognizes that the success of the 49ers hinges on the team’s faithful fans, and he is committed to honoring them for their passion and enthusiasm. One of his most popular moves was directing the organization to create new uniforms for the 49ers that connect the team’s future aspirations to its championship glory years of the 1980s and 1990s. He also created the ticket sales and services department to give each season ticket holder a personal representative and point of contact within the organization.

Most recently, York has focused the 49ers organization’s efforts on creating the ultimate fan experience at Levi’s® Stadium. In conjunction with the SCSA, the new stadium has been designed and built on the pillars of innovation and sustainability in order to create the ultimate experience for all visitors. The goal is to make Levi’s® Stadium the premier, outdoor sports and entertainment venue in the world, while incorporating all that is special about the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. The stadium is set to feature amenities such as a world-class Wi-Fi network, which will allow all visitors the ability to customize their own experience through the use of their personal handheld devices. Additionally, the 49ers are currently developing an App which will offer fans premium, original content on their own devices, the ability to order concessions and merchandise from their seats and the option to enjoy a paper-less, cash-less game day experience.

Under York’s leadership, the team established the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. 49ers Hall of Fame in 2009, to commemorate the significant accomplishments of some of the team’s biggest stars and key contributors. Named for his grandfather and the beloved patriarch of the 49ers, the Hall of Fame automatically inducted those 49ers greats that had either had their jersey numbers retired by the team or have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. York, shortly thereafter, announced the Hall of Fame’s inaugural inductee, his uncle, Edward J. DeBartolo Jr., who was enshrined during the 2009 season.

CARRYING ON THE FAMILY’S LEGACY

York’s roots with the 49ers run deep. He is the oldest child of Denise and John York, the co-chairmen of the team. York’s uncle and godfather, Eddie DeBartolo, also known to fans as “Mr. D,” has long served as a mentor.

York began his career as a financial analyst at Guggenheim Partners, a diversified financial services firm. He worked in the firm’s New York office in several areas, including private wealth management, hedge funds risk analysis, and collateralized debt obligations.

Born and raised in Youngstown, OH, York was a student athlete at Cardinal Mooney High School where he was captain of the baseball team as well as student body president. After high school, York decided to carry on a family tradition by attending the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a degree in both finance and history. York was a member of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honors Society.

York credits his parents, his uncle Eddie, and his grandfather Edward DeBartolo Sr. as being positive role models and for teaching him character values such as integrity, a strong work ethic, and respect for others. He is pleased to carry on his family’s commitment to community by serving as a board member at Tipping Point Community, the Common Wealth Club, Bay Area Council, Silicon Valley Leadership Group, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

Besides his tremendous passion for the 49ers, York enjoys traveling, fishing, and playing cards, which he learned from his grandfather.

Jed lives in the Bay Area with his wife, Danielle, and son, Jaxon.
