U.S. Soccer’s Membership elected Carlos Cordeiro as U.S. Soccer’s 32nd President during the National Council Meeting at the Federation’s 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM). Cordeiro will serve a four-year term.

A life-long soccer fan, Cordeiro becomes President after serving in various roles with U.S. Soccer since being appointed as the Federation’s first Independent Director in 2007. As Vice President since 2016, he worked to reform Board governance with a focus on greater transparency and accountability.

In addition, he represents U.S. Soccer on the CONCACAF Council and FIFA’s Stakeholders Committee.

A business executive with more than 30 years of experience in international finance, he became a partner at Goldman Sachs in the early 1990s and was later appointed Vice Chairman-Asia. He advised governments, global corporations, and international financial institutions. Now retired, he continues to serve as an honorary unpaid advisor to the firm. From 2005 to 2015, he was an independent director of BHP Billiton, the world’s largest natural resources company, where he focused on governance, finance and risk management.

Born to a Colombian mother and a Portuguese father in 1956, Cordeiro immigrated to the United States from India with his widowed mother and three siblings at the age of 15. He became an American citizen 10 years later. He is a graduate of Miami Beach High School, Harvard College and Harvard Business School. A dedicated philanthropist, he has supported nonprofit causes that reflect his commitment to education and healthcare and has held director-level positions at several charitable foundations.
