Jennings is the one I'm interested in. He is/was an investor in Johnny Rocket's.

C.E. Andrews earned a Bachelor's degree in accounting, Virginia Tech.
Mark Jennings earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with Highest Honors from the University of Texas at Austin, graduating second in his class, and received his MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business in 1986
I can't seem to find anything on David Pauken. Can anyone else?

"Mr. Pauken is the Chief Operating Officer of the Washington Redskins. In addition to managing all non-football aspects of the organization, he played an integral role in creating the organization's capital structure and managing its financial relationships. Prior to joining the Washington Redskins, Mr. Pauken served as Chief Accounting Officer for Snyder Communications from 1996-2000. From 1984 to 1996, Mr. Pauken was an auditor with Arthur Andersen."
The above is from the official release. But you're right, Google doesn't reveal much else about the guy.
I did note in the search that last year he and the Redskins were in a little hot water with Mastercard. It seems that Pauken came up with a policy that Redskin Season Ticket Holders could only use the "official Washington Redskins Mastercard" to purchase tickets, other than cash of course.
Mastercard took exception and said that they couldn't limit purchases to the use of a specifically themed credit card.

So it's just a matter of time till they announce that Mr. Six is being replaced by Joe Theisman.
