MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Marc de Grandpre is back with the New York Red Bulls, having been hired as head of commercial operations. De Grandpre, who worked for the Red Bulls as their managing director after Red Bull purchased the former MetroStars in 2006, will join the club on April 30 and in effect replace Jerome de Bontin, who resigned as general manager on the eve of the 2014 MLS season.

Since leaving the Red Bulls in 2008, he served as head of marketing & senior vice president at Kind Snacks and chief marketing officer at IMAX.  

De Bontin's only full season with the Red Bulls was the 2013 season. He managed the Red Bulls' business affairs, while Scotsman Andy Roxburgh was responsible for soccer affairs as sporting director.

De Grandpre will along with Roxburgh report to what the Red Bulls described as Red Bull's global soccer leadership. De Bontin had reported directly to the owner of Red Bull, Dietrich Mateschitz.
