English club Oxford City FC have appointed Craig Tornberg as their new General Manager & Director of Global Business.
Oxford CEO Thomas Guerriero made the announcement last week and has high hopes of what the former New England Revolution general manager can bring to Conference North outfit who play out of Marston in Oxfordshire, south east England.
“Craig is a remarkable person and is an expert at building organizations both on the pitch and in the community as he showed from his 17 years with the Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution,” he said.
“His success on the pitch, seeing the Revolution going to four MLS Championship matches as well as winning the US Open Cup and the Super liga trophies during his tenure, is only surpassed by his work off the pitch where he is so highly regarded throughout the New England community.
“He is a tremendous addition to the Oxford City family and shows our commitment to succeeding both now and in the future.”
Tornberg added: “I am honored to be chosen for this role at Oxford City Football Club.
“Over the past month, I have been investing time to get to know our club’s committee members, staff, volunteers and fans and am overwhelmed by our club’s community commitment.
“We will continue to honor the 131 years of history that Oxford City Football Club brings to the region as we position ourselves to grow our club in the modern era. I want to thank Thomas Guerriero, Colin Taylor and our entire board for their support and to our fans, both current and future, for their trust in me as we work together growing our club.”
