January 12, 2023

Expands front office staff in preparation for 2023 season at Furman University

The Greenville Triumph Soccer Club, the Upstate’s professional soccer club home to the Greenville Triumph and Greenville Liberty soccer teams, has tapped Josh Lorenzen as director of business administration & finance, and Gio Gañas as account executive.

The front office expansion comes on the heels of successful fourth season for the Greenville Triumph, the team making it to the semi-finals of the USL League One playoffs; and a successful inaugural season for the Greenville Liberty, the team having completed its season undefeated at home.

The Greenville Triumph SC recently announced that both the Greenville Triumph and Greenville Liberty will play their home matches at Furman University in 2023 as the soccer club works toward construction of a multi-use stadium to host matches as early as 2024.

“We’re thrilled to have Josh and Gio on our team,” said Chris Lewis, president of the Greenville Triumph SC. “Josh and Gio bring a wealth of knowledge and passion to our front office team that will be essential to helping us carrying out our organization’s mission to positively impact the community.”

Josh Lorenzen, the club’s director of business administration & finance, will oversee the daily financial operations for the club. An experienced business operations professional, Josh joins the Triumph after four years working in the athletic industry, previously serving as athletics director of business operations at Clemson University, and in operational roles in athletic departments at the University of Oklahoma and University of North Florida.

As the soccer club’s new account executive, Gio Cañas, is responsible for actively selling season, group, and promotion ticket packages for the Greenville Triumph and Greenville Liberty. An ambassador of the club since its inaugural season in 2018, Gio will work with the community in building relationships and bringing soccer to the public through a variety of club initiatives. Cañas is a graduate of the University of South Carolina Upstate, where he studied business marketing and international business.

The Greenville Triumph kicks off its fifth season at home against the Richmond Kickers on March 25 and will release the full season schedule Jan. 11. The Greenville Liberty is expected to begin its second season in early May. For tickets and information, visit and
