Strikers Name New CEO with Fort Lauderdale Roots

Fort Lauderdale native Sean C. Guerin was named chief executive officer of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers today.  Strikers Managing General Partner Ricardo Geromel made the announcement.

“After a lengthy search, we are pleased that a business veteran with Sean’s credentials has agreed to join us,” said Geromel. “He brings more than 20 years  of  business experience from a variety of industries including sports.  Sean will ‘hit the ground running’ and immediately prove to be an asset as we begin the 2015 season. His expertise will also pay dividends long term as we increase the Strikers’ footprint and brand identity.”

Guerin will be responsible for the overall strategic direction of the club’s sales and marketing efforts, fan experience, stadium improvements and new stadium development plans.  He will work closely with Geromel, team President Tim Robbie and Co-Managing Partner Madison Stanford.

Guerin comes to the Strikers from DEX imaging, where he served as a divisional president.  In 2013, DEX imaging acquired U.S. Imaging Solutions, a South Florida-based company that Guerin co-founded in 1998.  He grew U.S. Imaging Solutions into a successful independent office equipment dealer.

“I have great memories of attending Strikers games at Lockhart Stadium as a young boy,” said Guerin. “Now, it’s come full circle with my daughters playing soccer on the fields adjacent to the Stadium. More importantly, I have great respect for the Strikers’ heritage in South Florida, and I’m looking forward to using my experience and skills to capitalize on the momentum of this great sport in the United States. With the help of a great front office team, we will build a winner and make the Strikers a first class organization.”

Guerin’s credits include working for the then-Florida Marlins as one of the club’s first employees before joining a local Anheuser-Busch distributor.  He then joined Boston Market, where he led the marketing for the northeast and opened the restaurant’s 1,000th location.

Guerin’s community and philanthropic involvement over the years helped him earn the Sun-Sentinel Excalibur Award in 2004.  Guerin recently completed his fifth year as chairman of the board for the Broward College Board of Trustees and remains a current trustee.   He serves on the board for St. Mark’s Episcopal School and the Broward Workshop.  Guerin resides in Fort Lauderdale with his wife and three children.
