PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles made significant moves in their personnel department Thursday, most notably making Catherine Raîche the highest-ranking female personnel executive in NFL History and also bringing in former Jacksonville general manager Dave Caldwell to bolster the department.
Raîche is taking over the role Andrew Berry had before he left the organization to become the General Manager of the Cleveland Browns as Vice President of Football Operations.
She had been the Eagles’ Football Operations/Player Personnel Coordinator for the past two seasons and Raiche’s new role will involve her in all areas of football operations and player personnel, including pro and college scouting, contract management, player/staff development, and football research.
Before joining the Eagles, Raîche spent five years in the Canadian Football League working for the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes, including holding the title of Assistant General Manager for the Alouettes.
A native of Montreal, Raîche has a law degree at the Universite de Sherbrooke and also earned a master’s degree in tax law. She practiced corporate and tax law for three years before making her transition to professional sports in 2015.
