Fire Tue Aug 26 2008

New Fire President

Does anybody remember John Guppy? Me neither. But the Fire finally hired his replacement,Dave Greeley, who spent six years with the Chicago Bears as Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Director of Sales & Marketing. Greeley will be the top Fire executive leading the strategic planning and overall management of the franchise and stadium. Obviously, that management of the stadium part still needs work with the parking situation still a nightmare three years in and the Fire's relationship with it's most loyal fans at an all time low. While Guppy also had a role in the soccer side of things, it looks like that will be left to Technical Director Frank Klopas and coach Denis Hamlet.
