The USL Champion New York Red Bulls II have hired a new Business Operations Director in Jamie Ponce.

Ponce will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of NYRB II, including ticket sales, marketing partnerships and strategy. The position will report to team general manager Shaun Oliver.

Ponce does have a history with the New York Red Bulls as he has worked for the team since 2012 as Director of Sales Service and Ticket Operations. Ponce’s portfolio ranges beyond soccer as he was with the New Jersey Nets before 2012 in their Premium Sales department. The New Jersey resident is yet another example of the growth of the reserve team, both in terms of their on-field product as well as their infrastructure and front office. The team will begin play at Montclair next season.

NYRB II will be looking to defend their USL Championship starting in March of 2017.
