Chicago Fire have named a new team president.
The Fire introduced Chicago businessman Julian Posada on Thursday to replace former president Dave Greeley, who resigned over the summer after 2 1/2 years with the club.
"I'm very passionate about the sport," Posada told the Daily Herald. "I play it. I love it."
Posada doesn't see his lack of experience in sports management as a problem.
"What you should also know about me is I had no right in running a newspaper and I did that pretty successfully, and I had no right running two non-profits, and I did that," he said.
Posada has worked as a media and entertainment executive for nearly 20 years in the Chicago market.
"Julian is a very dynamic, energetic and savvy business leader who has a passion for Chicago and an ambitious drive for achieving successful business growth," said Javier Leon, managing director for Andell Sports Group.
