GABRIEL BRENER -CONTROLLING OWNER

Gabriel Brener acquired the controlling interest in MLS’s Houston Dynamo, the NWSL’s Houston Dash and BBVA Stadium from Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) on December 15, 2015. Mr. Brener leads the ownership group comprised of four other investors: boxing champion and Golden Boy Productions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, Stormlight Holdings Chairman & CEO Jake Silverstein, White Deer Partners Managing Partner Ben Guill and NBA All-Star James Harden.

Mr. Brener announced the acquisition of the majority interest on the 10-year anniversary of the date that the club’s move to Houston had been announced in 2005. He joined the ownership group as a minority investor, along with De La Hoya, in 2008.

A native of Mexico City, Mr. Brener is the only Mexican-born owner of an American professional sports franchise and, along with Arte Moreno of Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, is one of just two Latino owners in American sports.

Although he was raised in Mexico, Mr. Brener’s roots in the Houston community run deep. His love for the city was developed as a child when he and his family would visit his grandmother regularly; and he and his wife Deborah were married in the Bayou City.

Mr. Brener also serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Brener International Group, LLC, a Los Angeles-based private investment firm and family office with global business and investment interests. The Group’s current investments comprise holdings in private companies, publicly traded companies, and other ventures. The Group acquires and builds ownership stakes in established, well-managed companies with solid market positions and strong growth potential. The Brener Group focuses its direct investments in businesses directed to U.S Hispanics, sports and entertainment, consumer products and real estate.

Mr. Brener and his wife have four children – sons Philipe, Nathaniel and Jay and daughter Jennifer – and he has two sisters, Susana and Lili, who each live in Houston.
