U.S. Soccer chief executive Flynn to step down next week

(Reuters) – Longtime U.S. Soccer Chief Executive and Secretary General Dan Flynn, who is credited with turning around the finances of the federation, will step down from his position on Sept. 16, the governing body said on Monday.

Flynn, 64, came aboard as U.S. Soccer’s chief executive in 2000 when it was struggling financially and went on to overhaul the federation’s business framework which ultimately helped grow a substantial reserve for future endeavors.

“His steadfast leadership has been invaluable and drove the sport to new heights,” said U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro.

“Dan can look back on his tenure knowing that our Federation and soccer in America is stronger than ever because of his dedicated service.”

During his tenure Flynn also led the development of soccer facilities to help grow the game in the United States and led the effort to open the new National Soccer Hall of Fame Experience in Frisco, Texas, last year.

A former executive with brewing giant Anheuser-Busch, Flynn was also involved in the successful staging of the 2003 Women’s World Cup on an expedited timeline.

“The honor of serving U.S. Soccer has been a privilege and experience of a lifetime,” said Flynn.

“None of what we’ve been able to accomplish over my time here would be possible if not for the people within our organization – past and present – who shared my belief and love for what the sport of soccer means and can do here in the United States.”

While the search for Flynn’s successor moves forward, U.S. Soccer’s board of directors named Chief Stakeholder Officer Brian Remedi to the additional position as Chief Administrative Officer to ensure the smooth continuity of operations.
