Dallas Sidekicks Name Jessie Vilkofsky as First Female General Manager
Allen, TX (May 13, 2022) - The Dallas Sidekicks have announced the naming of Jessie Vilkofsky as the organization’s first female General Manager. Vilkofsky will also be joining many established female leaders throughout the MASL, but will be the first female General Manager.
Jessie Vilkofsky joined the Sidekicks Front Office in the Summer of 2021 as the Director of Operations and quickly became the Director of Sales and Marketing for the organization. Before joining the Sidekicks, Vilkofsky had experience playing and coaching soccer at the NCAA Division I and Division II levels. With her previous work experience, Vilkofsky has proven that she can successfully manage and lead a team while also managing the daily operations elements of an organization.
“This is an absolute honor to have the opportunity to fulfill a role for this historic organization. I have always had the goal to become the GM since the day I was hired. I am beyond excited to take on this new role and make an impact in other areas of the Sidekicks organization,” said Vilkofsky.
Vilkofsky also said, “Being alongside several other female leaders and owners in the league, makes me even more excited to start this position because I will have other female role models that I can work with.”
Sidekicks President, Jesse Llamas, commented when asked about Vilkofsky becoming the first female General Manager in Sidekicks and MASL history, “I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to hire Ms. Jessie Vilkofsky as the first female GM for the Sidekicks and in the MASL. She had her eyes on the GM role from day one, spending extra time in player negotiations this year with me and her background in being a college recruiter showed.”
Vilkofsky’s priority in this new role is to “re-sign several of our impact players as well as our Head Coach Ricardinho.”
“We have extremely high expectations for the 2022-2023 season, which include more than winning games. I am very adamant to continue serving our community and building relationships that create positive impact,” said Vilkofsky.
When asked about the growth of the MASL, Vilkofsky commented, “The MASL is growing overall, and I’m very appreciative and excited to be here while all the positive movement is taking place.”
