Union promote Nowak

Philadelphia Union CEO & Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz announced  that Peter Nowak, the club’s first ever team manager, has been named Executive Vice President of Soccer Operations/Team Manager of Philadelphia Union.

Nowak’s title change is a representation of his extensive duties as they relate to all soccer operations within the Union organization.

"Peter’s new title better reflects his broader responsibilities overseeing our entire soccer operation,” said Sakiewicz. “From day one, Peter has proven to be a talented strategist and his passion and knowledge of the sport suit him perfectly for this role.”

As Philadelphia Union expand their technical programs and soccer operations throughout the Philadelphia region, Nowak will continue to oversee all personnel and activities involving the first team and youth academy.

Nowak joined the Union on May 29, 2009 and since then has served as Team Manager, responsible for all facets of the club's training and on-field performance.  A Major League Soccer legend, Nowak has won MLS Cups as both a player and a coach, the only individual to have accomplished the feat in league history.  A former Polish National Team captain, Nowak served a dual role as Head Coach of the Under-23 U.S. Men’s National Team and assistant to Bob Bradley with the full national team prior to arriving in Philadelphia.
