Belair succeeds Nicholls as Technical Director at Charlotte FC
by Jonathan Rest

Charlotte FC have filled their Technical Director vacancy, promoting Bobby Belair from Director of Player Personnel.

Bobby has been instrumental in our sporting operations for the past two years and we’re delighted to announce his well-earned promotion to Technical Director. His professional growth since joining Charlotte FC has been clear to see and he’s excited for the challenge to step into this new role within our organisation.

Charlotte FC debuted in MLS this year, but Belair (pictured) actually joined in April 2020 to oversee the team’s salary budget for the inaugural roster build. 

 

He will work closely with Sporting Director Zoran Krneta, and with the first leadership leadership to help guide the sporting vision across the first team, MLS Next Pro, the new professional league, and Academy programmes.

 

This includes working with the Scouting Department on player acquisitions and with Executive Director of Academy, Bryan Scales, and MLS Next Pro President, Darrius Barnes, to oversee player pathways to the first team.

 

Belair, a former Player Personnel Manager at rivals Atlanta United, succeeds Marc Nicholls, who quit as Technical Director at the beginning of the year to take on the same role at Columbus Crew 

 

Belair said: “I’m thrilled to be entrusted with a larger role and responsibilities that coincide with my passions, values, and love for the sport. Being able to oversee critical roles within the sporting department and enhance pathways for players throughout the Carolinas, which I call home, is a dream come true.”

 

Krneta added: “Bobby has been instrumental in our sporting operations for the past two years and we’re delighted to announce his well-earned promotion to Technical Director. His professional growth since joining Charlotte FC has been clear to see and he’s excited for the challenge to step into this new role within our organisation.”
