Gotham FC appoints Ryan Dillon and Liz Montano as top business executives

Gotham FC, a soccer team based in New York and New Jersey, has recently made significant leadership changes. Ryan Dillon has been named Chief Business Officer on a permanent basis, having overseen the team’s front office since December. In addition to Dillon, Liz Montaño, the former COO of the Coyotes, has also been hired for the NWSL club as its new Chief Operating Officer.

Dillon’s background includes previous roles at Next 3, a sports investment firm led by Gotham FC co-owner Carolyn Tisch Blodgett. He also has experience as VP/Marketing at Peloton. Under Dillon’s leadership, Gotham FC has experienced significant success, including securing a major sponsorship agreement with CarMax and doubling its season ticket base. The team is also seeing an increase in attendance at Red Bull Arena this season.

Montaño will be responsible for overseeing various functions within the organization such as data and analytics, finance, HR and legal. During her time with the Coyotes she played a key role in their move to Mullett Arena on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University (ASU). Despite the smaller capacity of the arena compared to their previous home stadium, Montaño helped increase ticket revenue for her team. Prior to her role with Coyotes Montaño served as VP/Finance & Strategic Planning at Panavision which is another added strength to her profile.
