A graduate of Brevard College in North Carolina, Brown holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management and Organizational Leadership and several coaching licenses including the USSF “A” License, NSCAA Premier Diploma, and Director of Coaching Diploma.
David Kraus, Board President, stated, “We didn’t really expect to end up here a year ago when we selected Stuart from a number of quality candidates. Frankly, we had a different structure in mind. He has proven to be much more than expected and has earned this opportunity by his effort since coming onboard. Stuart has embraced and promoted our culture, developed a passion for our community, and delivered on the strategic vision of the club. It’s a natural move for us at this time.”
“This is a challenge that I am ready to meet. I have a great staff, among the best in the country in my opinion, and we continue to build on our own momentum around fulfilling the club’s vision, improving player development, and delivering on a better member experience. The membership has been a pleasure to get to know and serve, and I am convinced that joining Tennessee SC has been a great choice for my family.”
