Paraag Marathe is in his 19th year with the 49ers, currently serving as both President of 49ers Enterprises & Executive Vice President of Football Operations.
On the team side, Marathe continues in his long-respected role as the team’s chief contract negotiator and salary cap architect, while overseeing the team’s football analytics department, among other football duties. He is responsible for the 49ers compliance with the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement and works alongside general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan on all aspects of the club’s football operations.
Within 49ers Enterprises, Marathe oversees outside business ventures, advisory efforts, and major investment opportunities for the club. Marathe recently led the effort by 49ers Enterprises to purchase a minority ownership stake in Leeds United Football Club of the English Championship League. Marathe holds a seat on the Leeds United Board of Directors as part of the investment designed to help the historic club earn promotion to the Premier League. Backed by the 49ers in the 2018-19 season, Leeds fell just shy of promotion, advancing to the Championship play-off semi-final.
