The Denver Broncos’ new ownership group is the league’s most diverse, with four of the six members either female or minorities.
Rob Walton and his daughter and son-in-law brought aboard three Black limited partners. They are former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Starbucks board chair Mellody Hobson and Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton.
The group purchased the Broncos for a record $4.65 billion from the Pat Bowlen Trust. The sale was approved this week and the new owners flew to Denver to met with players and staff on Wednesday.
Walton says Penner will be the team’s new CEO.
