Published January 29, 2013
UNITED WE STAND: DC United yesterday promoted CFO MICHAEL WILLIAMSON to COO & CFO and Senior VP/Marketing Communications DOUG HICKS to CMO. The club also named Foreign Policy magazine VP & Associate Publisher MIKE SCHOENBRUN VP/Business Development & Partnerships. Meanwhile, the club announced that JOSH COHEN (ticket operations), AMANDA FARINA (marketing), REBECCA PAYNE (digital media), ANDREW SKORUPSKI (finance), ROY TEWELL (ticket sales) and RYAN TRONOVITCH (media relations) have assumed roles as department leads (DC United). In DC, Steven Goff noted the club "decided not to fill" the roles held by former President & CEO KEVIN PAYNE, who left in November to become Toronto FC President. Goff noted the front office has "undergone considerable change since" club investor JASON LEVIEN partnered with ERICK THOHIR and WILL CHANG. In addition to the exits of Payne and former Exec VP STEPHEN ZACK, "several employees in ticketing, marketing and communications were dismissed" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 1/28).
