WARREN, NJ, February 2, 2017 – Jeff Curtin, previously the managing director of InterperformancesUSA’s (IPZ) soccer group, will add responsibility for the day-to-day management of the firm, effective immediately.
Curtin will also remain the managing director of the soccer division. He will continue reporting to IPZ Managing Partner Robert Zito.
“I am excited and honored to take on the role as Managing Director of IPZ. Bob has put together an exceptional team and I am truly happy to be a part of it,” said Curtin. “IPZ has built its foundation on integrity and family, two principles that are at the core of who I am and what I value as an individual. I am convinced that we will capitalize on our early momentum and be a true resource and partner for our clients.”
Curtin was an All-American soccer player at Georgetown University, where he earned his B.S. in Business Management. He was the 14th overall selection in the 2006 Major League Soccer Super Draft. In his first year with the Chicago Fire, he was a member of the Fire team that won the U.S. Open Cup.
Following two seasons with the Fire, Curtin moved on to D.C. United before injuries ended his career.
Curtin’s passion for sports never ceased, as he conducted both coaching and training clinics for numerous top level youth clubs, including the youth development programs of the Chicago Fire and Philadelphia Union.
“Jeff has hit the ground running with IPZ and his willingness to assist with the management of the firm will help fuel our growth,” said Zito. “His knowledge of sports beyond soccer has been evident, along with his commitment to IPZ’s values of integrity and family.”
