Brittany Bowlen stepped down from Broncos front office last month – Greeley Tribune

Brittany Bowlen left the Broncos’ front office last month ahead of an ownership change next month.

Bowlen, one of five children of Pat and Annabel Bowlen, rejoined the organization in November 2019, serving as vice president of strategy and also leading the club’s COVID-19 response in 2020.

Brittany Bowlen said in a statement: “I recently decided to step down from my position with the Broncos. I have enjoyed working in the team’s front office during my time and feel blessed to work alongside such a talented and supportive group of people. I wish Walton-Penner Family Properties the best as they embark on the next chapter in this organization’s storied history.”

An ownership group led by Rob Walton, Greg Penner and Carrie Walton-Penner is expected to be approved to take over the Broncos during a special league meeting on August 9 in Minneapolis.

Bowlen informed the Broncos of his decision at a staff meeting last month after president/CEO Joe Ellis presented an ownership update and asked to address the group.

In October 2018, Bowlen went public with his desire to succeed his father as the next owner of the Broncos. But he faced immediate opposition from half-sisters Beth Bowlen Wallace and Amie Klemmer.

After the 2019 season, Ellis said unanimous family support “may not be required, but it will be necessary moving forward” for Bowlen to be in control. Ellis added that if that doesn’t happen, the Broncos will eventually be sold.

There would never be full sibling support for Bowlen’s candidacy, and the Broncos were put up for sale in February, with the final sale price next month set to be a world-record franchise price of $4.65 billion.
