Mark Lamping is the current team president of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was formerly CEO of the MetLife Stadium. Prior to his stint in New York, he was president of the St. Louis Cardinals Major League Baseball team, a post he held from September 1, 1994 until March 13, 2008.[1] Lamping is now a non-executive director of English association football team Fulham, which is owned by Jaguars owner Shahid Khan.[2]

Life and career[edit]

This baseball team was an important part of my summers. And to be given the chance to serve as the team president well, that’s too big of a dream for somebody like me to have.
