Houston Dynamo secure president Canetti
Houston Dynamo president Chris Canetti has signed a contract extension with the club.
Canetti, who joined the Dynamo in 2006 as chief operating officer, was appointed president in 2010 and will now remain in his position for the next few years after extending his stay.
"Under Chris' leadership, the Dynamo have not only achieved some of the most successful seasons (on and off the pitch) in MLS history, they have truly been a model franchise for all of professional sports," said Tim Leiweke, President & CEO, AEG, managing partners, Houston Dynamo.
"While waiting years to open one of the great soccer stadiums, Chris continued to set records for attendance and revenue and now, with BBVA Compass Stadium, we have no doubt that with Chris guiding the organization, the best is yet to come for the Houston Dynamo franchise and their fans.
"On behalf of (owners) Oscar De La Hoya, Gabriel Brener and Phil Anschutz, we could not be more pleased to ensure that Chris will remain with the Dynamo for years to come."
