FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (May 6, 2024) The New England Revolution have hired longtime soccer executive David Kammarman as the club’s new Head of Player Recruitment.

Kammarman was previously the longtime Director of Soccer Operations with the LA Galaxy for eight seasons from 2009-16, where he overlapped with Onalfo as they won three MLS Cups together in 2011, 2012, and 2014.

With LA, Kammarman had numerous responsibilities including player development, scouting, talent evaluations, agent and MLS communications, and Collective Bargaining Agreement compliance.

“I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the Revolution and work with Curt, Caleb, and the rest of the staff to build upon the foundation and legacy of one of the league’s original clubs,” Kammarman said. “I’ve been fortunate in my career to work with great clubs and coaches, and I hope to bring some of those experiences here to help us achieve great things as a team and organization.”

Kammarman, a native of Laurel, Maryland, graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in political science.
