Katherine Reitsch, the NFL’s most senior female executive, heads to Cleveland. Browns announced Thursday that they hired Reiche as their assistant general manager and vice president of football operations. She came from the Philadelphia Eagles, where she served as vice president of football operations.
The Montreal native began her NFL career with the Eagles after rising through the ranks in the Canadian Football League. From trainee to first female CFL executive, football administration coordinator, and finally assistant general manager, Reich made her way to the NFL, where she continued to break down barriers.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired her in 2019 as a football operations coordinator. She was promoted to Vice President of Football Operations in 2021.
The 33-year-old was considered for the Minnesota Vikings general manager position earlier this offseason. Despite not being hired, she went down in history as believed to be. The position eventually went to former Browns Vice President of Football Operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah.
