As the son of the late Vincent T. Lombardi, remembered as one of the greatest football coaches in history, Vince's early years were spent in an atmosphere full of personal power and achievement.
Armed with honesty, integrity and authenticity, virtues he places above all others, Vince earned a law degree and maintained a private practice while serving in the Minnesota legislature.
Vince made the jump from law and politics to professional football in 1975 when he joined the fledging Seattle Seahawks as an assistant to the General Manager. He went on to become Assistant Executive Director of the National Football League Management Council as a labor negotiator and later led two United States Football League teams as President and General Manager.
To each of these organizations Vince brought direction, enthusiasm, and the impetus to succeed. He has the remarkable ability to put people ahead of the organization, allowing each individual to do what he does best without losing sight of team goals. He gained a reputation for being tough, yet fair; uncompromising, yet supportive. The individual qualities and character of Vince Lombardi are exciting to witness.
It is an emotional uplift to watch and listen to Vince Lombardi as he weaves together his childhood experiences with his father and his adult experiences from law, politics and professional football.
Vince Lombardi's enthusiasm for growth, change and improved performance, blended with his strong personality and first-hand knowledge of his legendary father's leadership techniques makes for a dynamic presentation.
