Dean A. Spanos
Chairman of the Board - President

Bio

Under the leadership of Chairman of the Board-President Dean Spanos, the San Diego Chargers have become one of the NFL’s most respected franchises. Spanos has provided critical direction and resources while building a winning, family environment that has led to consistency and success.

Over the past decade (2004-13), the Chargers won 104 games (playoffs included), including five AFC West championships (2004, 2006-09) and four playoff games. Only three teams won more games during that span.

Most recently, Spanos oversaw one of the largest transition periods in franchise history. Last year he brought in new leadership for the football team, hiring Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy to serve as the team’s new general manager and head coach, respectively. The moves transformed the Chargers’ front office from one of the NFL’s oldest to the youngest. Telesco (41), McCoy (41) and Chief Executive Officer A.G. Spanos (36) remain the youngest leadership trio in the League.

The additions of Telesco and McCoy have brought new energy and optimism to the organization and its fan base. Spanos’ hires built the roster and led the team back to the playoffs as well as a dominating 27-10 victory on the road against the favored Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card playoffs.

Spanos’ leadership is felt throughout the National Football League as well as all Spanos corporate entities. As a member of the Management Council Executive Committee (CEC), he played an integral role in negotiating the NFL’s current labor agreement prior to the 2011 season. He serves as chairman of the NFL’s Business Ventures Committee, which has oversight regarding various league commercial activities, including consumer products, sponsorship, events, marketing and new business initiatives. He also serves on the League’s International and Legislative Committees.

Spanos became President of the Chargers early in 1994, the same year the team culminated its most memorable season in team history with an appearance in Super Bowl XXIX. In addition, he also serves as President of the A.G. Spanos Companies.  Dean and his brother, Michael, oversee all construction operations nationwide.

Spanos’ commitment to San Diego and the team is undeniable. He has dedicated more than 12 years of hard work and millions of dollars to develop a plan to give San Diegans a modern Super Bowl-quality stadium and secure a long-term home for their football team. The reason for this bond: Dean, his wife Susie, and their two sons, A.G. and John, proudly have called San Diego home for 30 years.

Spanos’ efforts to build a special relationship between the team and its fans have helped the Chargers become one of San Diego’s most popular and talked-about institutions. These efforts were acknowledged in 2006 when the Chargers were named the League’s most fan-friendly team by FansVoice.com. Nothing grabs the attention of San Diegans like the Chargers, whose games have become the highlight of weekends during the season. Television ratings of games are unsurpassed while day-to-day news of the team dominates local talk shows and newscasts.

TRADITION OF GIVING

Spanos has continued the long-standing tradition of community service and support established by his father Alex Spanos.  His family is recognized as one of pro football’s most philanthropic families and one of Southern California’s most active and caring contributors. Their financial and emotional support of youth sports and education in San Diego is unmatched.

Most recently Spanos pledged $500,000 to UC San Diego to support a new Athletic Performance Center. The gift will support the expansion of the existing Alex G. Spanos Training Facility, the Chargers’ former training camp home, which will be renamed the Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center.  The additional gift raises the value of the family’s support of the institution to more than $1.6 million. 

“I’m proud to be able to support UC San Diego Athletics and the university where our family, the Chargers and Chargers fans have so many great memories,” said Spanos. “The donation will continue my father’s legacy of giving to the university while helping to provide an athletic experience on par with the school’s first-class academic experience.”

The Chargers Community Foundation continues to be a leader in assisting schools, honoring volunteers, supporting youth sports and aiding critical causes important to the community. The Foundation and the Spanos family have provided nearly $12 million to support a wide range of services and resources for programs directly affecting youth and families in San Diego County.

The Foundation’s largest ongoing program, Chargers Champions, was created in 1999 specifically to help San Diego County’s schools and students. The program has provided more than $5 million in direct assistance to local schools, teachers and students. The focus of Chargers Champions is to improve the fitness levels of students in the county. It provides grants directly to San Diego County schools for fitness, nutrition and athletic programs on area campuses.

A prime example of the family’s huge heart for San Diego was on display when the entire Chargers community was shaken by the sudden passing of former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau in 2012. Dean and his wife Susie hosted a “Celebration of Life” for Seau in Qualcomm Stadium. The event was seen and heard live by more than 150,000 San Diegans, making it possible for a grieving community to come together, heal and pay tribute to one of San Diego’s native sons.

Although such examples of Spanos’ largesse are too many to count, a number stand out. In 2000, local student-athletes received a giant boost when the Spanos family and Chargers Community Foundation supplied the initial funding to organize the first-ever freshman football and girls volleyball programs in the 16 San Diego City high schools. This major public-private partnership created more than 1,000 extracurricular opportunities for students.

Youth football in San Diego has known no greater champion than the Spanos family and the Chargers. Their support of the California Interscholastic Federation’s (CIF) annual high school football championship games allows the games to be played in Qualcomm Stadium. The Alex Spanos All-Star Classic, the longest-running high school all-star football game in California, is another example of their support. This devotion to youth football led the national Pop Warner organization to name the Chargers its 2007 NFL Team of the Year.

In 2007, when wildfires ravaged San Diego County for the second time in five years, Spanos jumped to the forefront with a $1 million donation to aid affected families and the recovery effort. He made an identical $1 million contribution immediately following the wildfires that hit the community in 2003.

Spanos also is a staunch supporter of San Diego’s police, fire and sheriff’s departments. Thanks to his generosity, critical communications centers have been upgraded and mobile command units for the police department have been purchased. Spanos’ financial support enabled local agencies to purchase wildfire fighting gear as well as other fire-fighting equipment. And in response to an increase in child abduction cases, Spanos hosted and paid for critical law enforcement training classes for the sheriff’s department.       

Spanos continues to be a major force in San Diego’s business and civic communities. He has been a top contributor to Rady Children’s Hospital, the San Diego Blood Bank, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, San Diego State University’s Campanile Foundation, University of San Diego, STAR/PAL, the San Diego Police Foundation, the San Diego Hall of Champions and the San Diego High School Sports Association.

Dean and Alex Spanos secured Super Bowl XXXII (1998) for the City of San Diego, a huge economic benefit for the community. Super Bowl XXXVII in January 2003 brought more than $300 million to the San Diego economy and marked the second time in five years that the San Diego region enjoyed the financial windfall of hosting a Super Bowl.

COMMUNITY HONORS

Honors for their generosity come frequently to Dean and Susie.

In 2014, the Spanos family received the Outstanding Community Service Award among all family-owned businesses by the San Diego Business Journal.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation presented the team with its Wish-Granting Partner of the Year Award while the California State Athletic Director’s Association presented the Chargers with its President’s Merit Award, both in 2012.  The Rotary Club of San Diego also presented Spanos and the Chargers organization with its prestigious Heilbron Award, given to companies that “exemplify the pay it forward spirit – that give of themselves and their professional expertise to advance the well-being and success of others in the community.”

They received the 2012 Herb Klein Spirit of San Diego Award from the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce at the organization’s annual awards dinner. In 2011 the Salvation Army recognized Spanos and the Chargers’ dedication to helping San Diego’s homeless citizens during their annual Golden Bells ceremony.

In 2010, the Association of Fundraising Professionals recognized Spanos and the Chargers as San Diego’s Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation, one of the most prestigious awards for community service.

“I’m fortunate to be in a position to help people and organizations that need and deserve our support. My family is proud to be a part of the San Diego community,” Spanos said upon receipt of the honor.

The American Diabetes Association honored Spanos at its annual Fathers of the Year Dinner in 2010. In 2007, the local Salvation Army named Dean and Susie as their Most Valuable Philanthropists.

In 2006 President George W. Bush appointed Spanos as a Board of Trustees member of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.  That same year he was the honored recipient of the Golden Achievement Award from the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Diego and Junior Achievement of San Diego inducted him into its Hall of Fame for his community leadership and specifically for his support of youth education initiatives.

The Warner Award, the top honor of the national Pop Warner football organization, was bestowed on him for his commitment to youth football and its Little Scholars education initiative in 2005. The San Diego Chapter of the National Football Foundation also presented Spanos with its highest honor, the Distinguished American Award. In 2004, the Police Historical Society presented him with their first Cota Award for community philanthropy and support of law enforcement. Dean and Susie received the Harold Leventhal Community Service Award in 2003, the top national award of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.

Spanos has the unique distinction of being a second-generation recipient of the renowned Ellis Island Medal of Honor, so honored in 2002, 16 years after his father was similarly honored. He was also inducted into the DeMolay International Alumni Hall of Fame in 2002. DeMolay International is an organization dedicated to preparing young men to lead successful and productive lives.

In 2001, the San Diego Hall of Champions Sports Museum presented Dean and Susie with its Community Champions Award, the Hall’s most distinguished award.  

BUSINESSMAN AND FAMILY MAN

Dean Alexander Spanos was born in Stockton, California. He earned varsity letters in football and golf at Lincoln High School in Stockton.

Spanos’ first win came with Green at the 1985 Bing Crosby Pro-Am at Pebble Beach, where he was awarded the “Most Valuable Amateur” trophy for supplying the most help to his professional partner. Later that year, his second win came in the 1985 Senior Players Reunion Pro-Am in Dallas, where he teamed with San Diego native Billy Casper.

Susie received the prestigious Celebration of Life Award in 2011 from the American Cancer Society. She is a spokeswoman for the NFL’s cancer campaign and is a breast cancer survivor.
