HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) –  Gabriel Brener, majority owner of the Houston Dynamo and Dash, announced John Walker will be the new President of Business Operations for the organization.

Walker comes to Houston with 30 years of experience in the sports industry, with the last three as the Executive Vice President for Business Operations with the Memphis Grizzlies.  Prior to his role with the Grizzlies, he also has experience with Major League Baseball and college athletics.

In his role as President of Business Operations, Walker will oversee all business operations for the Dynamo, Dash, BBVA Compass Stadium and the Houston Sports Park. 

Former president Chris Canetti resigned a week ago to join HCHSA in a role that will help bring the 2026 World Cup to Houston. 

The Dynamo just ended the 2018 season which was highlighted by winning the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, but failed to produce a playoff berth in the MLS Cup playoffs.
