Bowlen's Leadership Leads to Super Bowl

Posted Jan 31, 2014

Team President Joe Ellis said Owner and CEO Pat Bowlen's leadership is a big reason why the Broncos made it to Super Bowl XLVIII.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- In 30 years, Owner and CEO Pat Bowlen has been part of more than 300 wins.

Earlier this season, he became the first owner to accomplish that feat in such a short span of years. And with Bowlen's leadership at the top, Broncos President Joe Ellis isn't surprised in the least that the team has seen such a striking amount of success.

“Thirty years of leadership, north of 300 wins and now his sixth Super Bowl appearance going for his third Super Bowl win," Ellis said. "He’s just been a steady hand on this franchise – a guy with great instincts, humility, kindness. So I think everybody in the organization is rooting for us and I think a lot of fans as well are rooting for us to win as much as anything for him. He’s made it public that he’s taken a step back and let us do our jobs, he’s always let us do our jobs but even more so now on the public front, as you know. For him and his family, it certainly would be a great reward if we could come away with a victory on Sunday night.”

With so much work to do throughout the Super Bowl week, not everyone in the organization has time to fully soak in the experience.

Fortunately, Bowlen has that opportunity.

“He actually is probably the one person that is taking it all in and has seen it all in 30 years," Ellis said. "So he has a little more time to reflect and enjoy and take all of this in here. And I think that’s the way it should be. It’s a good time for him and so I’m happy for him and his family. This is a great week for them.”
