New York Red Bulls II Name Jamie Ponce General Manager
HARRISON, N.J. - New York Red Bulls II has promoted Jamie Ponce from Director of Business Operations to General Manager, the club announced today. Ponce takes over General Manager duties from Shaun Oliver, VP of Operations for the New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Arena, who is stepping down to concentrate on more arena-focused initiatives. Oliver will remain a New York Red Bulls II Board of Governors representative.
"I'm proud of what we have built so far with New York Red Bulls II," said Oliver. "With a strong foundation in place on both the sporting and business sides, the time is right to pass the torch to someone as capable and passionate as Jamie. We are proud to make this announcement and know that Jamie will continue to build NYRB II and foster a strong relationship between the club and the community."
Ponce was named Director of Business Operations shortly after New York Red Bulls II launched. Ponce has led all business-related aspects of the club, including ticket sales, member services and sponsorships. He joined the Red Bulls organization as an Inside Sales Manager in 2011 and rose to the position of Director of Ticket Sales & Service before taking on the role with NYRB II.
Ponce played a key role in the transition to Montclair State University, where the club began playing home matches in 2017 after renovating the playing surface, stands and press box, as well as adding streaming capabilities to ensure quality broadcast production of all home matches. MSU Soccer Park re-opened in June of 2018 after a second round of renovations.
NYRB II return home on Sunday, October 14 for the final regular season match of the year against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. On Tuesday, NYRB II clinched its fourth postseason berth with a win over Penn FC. USL Cup Playoff scheduling will be determined following the conclusion of regular season matches. 2019 NYRB II Memberships are on sale now. Each adult membership includes one free youth membership.
