Vice President of Content & Production l Minnesota Vikings
The 2021 season was Bryan Harper's 18th with the Minnesota Vikings and 21st in the NFL. Harper leads the award-winning Vikings Entertainment Network (VEN), a talented staff that is responsible for Content Strategy & Production, Digital & Social Media, and Game Presentation.
Harper plays a key role in the technology plans that support Vikings content production, serving as the Vikings lead on the design-build of the SkolVision Production Control Room at U.S. Bank Stadium, as well as TCO Studios at Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center.
Over his Vikings career, Harper has launched notable Vikings traditions such as the Skol Chant and Gjallarhorn; brand extensions such as VEN, Viktor the Viking and the Skol Line Drum Team; and innovative productions such as the league's only TV-Radio preseason simulcast and the can't-miss Vikings pregame intro sequence.
Along with his Vikings role, Harper has served as a production consultant for the NFL at the past 11 Super Bowls and since 2009 has volunteered with St. Paul, Minnesota-based Serving Our Troops. In late 2020, he joined Positive Coaching Alliance's Minnesota Chapter Board of Directors.
Prior to joining the Vikings, Harper built his foundation with stints at the Columbus Crew, Pittsburgh Pirates, Jacksonville Jaguars and International Speedway Corporation – contributing to a major construction project or new stadium during each stint.
