Mark Donovan was named the fifth president in Chiefs history in January 2011 after serving two years as the club’s Chief Operating Officer. As president, Donovan is responsible for all aspects of the club’s business operations and reports directly to Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt. “I want to thank Clark and the entire Hunt family for their support, confidence and trust,” Donovan said when he was named president. “It is a real privilege to be part of such a storied franchise and it’s especially exciting to have the opportunity to play an active role in shaping the next chapter in Chiefs history.” Recognized as one of the league’s most innovative executives, Donovan brings unique experience and perspective to the team. He is one of only a few executives league-wide who has worked both at the NFL league office and for a club, with valuable perspective and strong relationships both in the Kansas City area and on the national level.
