There's a new boss in charge of the Canadian Premier League.
On Thursday, Mark Noonan was introduced as the new commissioner of the CPL and chief executive officer of Canadian Soccer Business, replacing David Clanachan who left in January.
Noonan, 57, is a native of Connecticut who has more than two decades in the sports industry. A member of Duke University’s first-ever NCAA Division I championship soccer team in 1986, Noonan previously spent two years as Chief Marketing Officer with the United States Soccer Federation. He then moved to Major League Soccer where he served as executive vice president of marketing and fan development.
