Warrington, PA; January 13th, 2015 – Warrington Soccer Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the soccer skills of the youth in our community, is pleased to announce that Jim Keyser has joined the organization as Executive Director.
As Executive Director, Keyser, a 20+ year resident of Warrington, will oversee the club’s day-to-day operations, foster and promote the mission and needs of the club throughout the community, and serve as the facilitator of the club’s committees and main point of contact for significant issues affecting the development and delivery of the clubs programs, services, and tournaments.
“With Jim Grisan’s passing in April, we lost a founding member and trusted advisor. As we begin our 30th year of operation, the board felt strongly that now was the time to fill the Executive Director position. Jim Keyser is an important addition to the leadership of the club. He has a long track record of success and his blend of corporate and small business operations experience will equip him extremely well to manage the club on a day to day basis,” says Warrington Soccer Club President, Joe McGinnis.
Jim Keyser is a Warrington resident that had two children play for the club’s intramural program and he participated for several years as an assistant coach. His 20+ year professional career has had him in several roles including, Divisional President, Chief Operating Officer, and Vice President of Sales/Business Development. Over the past 5 years, he has been the independent owner and operator of two separate small businesses: a Philly Soft Pretzel factory and The Waiting Game. Running these businesses has afforded him the ability to build an extensive network of relationships within and around our club’s playing and recruiting area. Keyser was a dual Management and Accounting major at Temple University.
