President and Chief Executive Officer
Jed York began his career as a financial analyst at Guggenheim Partners, a diversified financial services firm. He worked in the firm’s New York office in several areas, including private wealth management, hedge funds risk analysis, and collateralized debt obligations.
Under York’s leadership, the team instituted a new 49ers hall of fame to commemorate the significant accomplishments of some of the team’s biggest stars. Named for his grandfather and the beloved patriarch of the 49ers, the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. 49ers Hall of Fame automatically inducted those 49ers greats that have either had their jersey numbers retired by the team or have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, upon its creation. York shortly thereafter announced the Hall of Fame’s inaugural inductee, his uncle, Edward J. DeBartolo Jr., who was enshrined during the 2009 season.
York is spearheading the team’s plans for a new state of the art stadium for 49ers fans. This year, the plans made significant steps forward with a certification of the Environmental Impact Report and the overwhelming victory of Measure J which authorizes the plans to move forward with a new stadium in Santa Clara, CA. The team’s goal is to open the new stadium in the 2014 season where it will quickly be known as the world’s premium sports and entertainment venue in the world.
York earned his degree in both finance and history at the University of Notre Dame and was a member of Phi Alpha Theta.
