Houston Dynamo Football Club President of Business Operations John Walker will step down at the end of the 2022 season after four seasons with the Club.
Under his leadership, the Club has experienced growth in the season-ticket base for both the Dynamo and the Dash and signed significant long-term partnerships with Fubo Gaming and Shell Energy. Walker also led a club rebrand in 2020 and oversaw improvements at PNC Stadium including new video boards, premium seating areas, and safe standing for the Hustle Town Supporters section. He was recognized in Sports Business Journal in 2021 as an industry leader in diverse hiring.
“I’ve really enjoyed working for the Club and am extremely proud of all that has been accomplished,” Walker said. “I appreciate ownership’s support in this decision and am grateful for the opportunity to lead the Club during such a transformational period. We have built a solid foundation both on and off the pitch, and the Club is well-positioned for success this season and in the coming years.”
“I’d like to thank John for his contributions to the Club over the past few years and respect his decision to step aside at the end of this season,” said controlling owner Ted Segal. “Our Club will continue to build on the momentum John helped to create and are excited about the future.”
The Club has initiated a search for Walker’s successor and will provide updates as that process progresses.
