NJ/NY Gotham FC has named Nathán Goldberg Crenier as the club’s new Assistant General Manager. He will take over for Stephanie Lee, who recently accepted a position as the Director of Player Affairs for the NWSL.
“Stephanie provided so much value to this organization,” said Yael Averbuch West, General Manager.
“The guidance and support she provided our entire front office were invaluable, and I know she’ll do great things at the league level. I’m so excited to work with Nathán. His knowledge of the game, unique background, and work ethic will make him an excellent addition to the Gotham FC family.”
“Gotham FC is an amazing organization and I’ve very much enjoyed my time here,” added Lee. “I’m excited for what comes next, but I’m just as excited to see what this incredible staff will accomplish in the weeks, months, and years ahead.”
Goldberg now joins the NWSL side after working with Orlando City and Orlando Pride, the St. Kitts & Nevis Football Association, and the US Soccer Federation. He also stands as the co-founder and president of two non-profit organizations, Bluebonnet Data and The Boarding School, focused on getting more young people involved in non-profit governance.
“I’m passionate about growing the game at every level and doing so in the world’s biggest sports market is a truly special opportunity,” said Goldberg.
“I’m thankful to the club ownership and leadership for bringing me on board, and I can’t wait to get to work and play a role in building the club’s future.”
The news of a new assistant GM comes after a coaching change from the team, parting ways with Scott Parkinson before introducing Hue Menzies as interim coach. The managerial chaos has seen Gotham suffer in the NWSL standings, dropping to 11th on the table with 13 points in 12 games and a record of 4W-9L-0D.
The team returns to action on Wednesday, when visiting the Houston Dash at PNC Stadium.
