i know this doesn't deserve its own thread, but couldn't find a place to put it. it will drift down and off the first page soon enough. but it does say something about the importance the Vikings place on creating this position, as her salary and benefit package surely doesn't come cheap.


Eden Prairie, MN (May 9, 2017) – The Minnesota Vikings have hired Tina Holmes as Chief of Staff & Strategic Advisor.

Holmes joins the team after spending the past four years as chief of staff at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota. In her new role with the Vikings, Holmes will work closely with the team’s executive vice presidents and vice presidents, acting as an executive liaison, surfacing issues and facilitating solutions. Additionally, she will provide support to Vikings Chief Operating Officer Kevin Warren in the planning and coordination of activities across the organization and in effectively communicating the team’s strategic objectives externally and with senior management and the broader organization.

“We are excited to have Tina join the Vikings organization,” said Warren. “She is a very bright woman of high character and integrity with a proven history of making strong strategic decisions that create positive organizational energy. She is a consummate professional and, as our organization continues to evolve and grow, is exactly what the Vikings need to keep building a ‘best in class’ global franchise.”

Holmes has a proven track record of driving and leading organizational change, building team commitment and cohesion and creating strong alignment between divisions. She served in various capacities at Blue Cross Blue Shield for nearly 20 years, with her most recent role as vice president and chief of staff. In addition to managing the office of the CEO, she advised, coordinated and collaborated on major strategic initiatives and highly complex projects while overseeing cross-functional activities throughout Blue Cross Blue Shield. Holmes was an integral member of Blue Cross Blue Shield’s executive leadership team and led Blue Cross’s business resiliency, crisis management and enterprise event teams.

I've been wondering for several years now why they hadn't yet hired a Chief of Staff and Strategic Advisor/ Planning Person. Surprised Confused

Thank goodness that's behind them now, and they can get onto winning a SB. Smile

Kelly Kleine made a fast impression on the Vikings with her scouting ability, and they’re rewarding her for it. According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the Vikings promoted Kleine from college scouting assistant to college scouting coordinator, a sign of the respect she’s gained within the organization.

Spielman: “She does about 1,000 different things to say the least. She basically has her hands in all day-to-day operations on the personnel side. The biggest thing when you’re trying to bring anyone up through an organization is to educate and train them. One thing we always try to identify are self-starters who have the work ethic and attention to detail where you can trust them to carry out whatever assignment is given them."

Kleine’s one of 14 women who work in football operations for NFL teams, and has made a quick rise through the operation. A former public relations intern, she moved to a position in scouting prior to the 2013 draft. And though she has no background playing or coaching football, she has impressed her bosses. She works with the personnel department and coaching staff, evaluating prospects, scouting at pro days, as well as coordinating the team’s trip to the Scouting Combine and travel for incoming prospects for visits. The Vikings have created many opportunites for women in a male-dominated business. This year, the team promoted three women to vice president-level positions on the business side, not counting director of football administration Anne Doepner, who handles contract negotiations.

It's nice to see when the actions actually reflect the words.

In fact, she should be given more credit for seeing the light after having grown up in Packer country.

that's what i was thinking too when i read about it. the NFL can bedazzle all the players and refs with pink regalia for breast cancer awareness, but who actually hires and pays these people?

in Viking lore, the women were also strong and capable.
