Oakland County FC Hires Dan Roland as Director of Operations

Oakland County Football Club is proud to announce Daniel Roland as the club’s Director of Operations.

“This is big step forward for our organization. Mr. Roland has essentially been with us since day one and we couldn’t be more excited for him and what he brings to our club. We are growing each and every day and we are beyond happy for Dan to be joining the family.” – Ben Rode, Co-Owner

A Vassar, MI native, Dan officially joins OCFC with a wide array of knowledge of the club and landscape of our operations as he has worked as an intern with the team for the past two seasons. Gearing up for this position, he headed the 2016 and 2017 intern teams and communicated with ownership on a weekly basis on areas that could be improved upon in regards to fan experience on game day. Dan’s current work with the Detroit Pistons in Operations and Marketing has helped him excel throughout his time with the club.

“It really is a true testament of just how far we’ve come. Dan has become one of our biggest behind-the-scenes assets and we couldn’t be more appreciative of him. He’s our right hand man.” – Theo Foutris, Co-Owner

I can’t wait to get to work and show the people of Oakland County what we have in store.” – Dan Roland, Director of Operations
