Having launched the Pac-12 Networks last year, Gary Stevenson is joining Major League Soccer as president and managing director of MLS Business Ventures, commissioner Don Garber announced Wednesday.
Stevenson recently left his position as the presidents of Pac-12 Enterprises, with responsibility for managing a media company that includes the Pac-12 Networks, the Pac-12 Digital Network and Pac-12 Properties.
"Gary's vast experience in the sports and entertainment world, along with his deep understanding of the media landscape, will play a pivotal role in growing key areas of our business and forming new partnerships," Garber said in a statement. "I've known Gary for more than two decades and am thrilled to have him join us during an exciting time of growth for our League. He brings a fresh perspective and entrepreneurial spirit that will drive value for Major League Soccer and our key partners at Soccer United Marketing, including U.S. Soccer, the Mexican Football Federation and CONCACAF."
