Just a quick note about some changes in the City Football Group empire. Tom Glick, Manchester City’s most recent Chief Marketing Officer, is moving to a new role as the president of New York City FC.
Glick brings some deep sports business experience having spent serious time in both the UK and US markets. It looks like he will be tasked with the daily operations and growth of the fledgling club as Chief Business Officer Tim Pernetti, who joined in 2013, is leaving for another opportunity.
The move is more indication that City Football Group is lining up a lot of talent to make sure the New York club has a strong year and is ready to take on the metropolitan market.
