Tacoma native Lane Smith’s ties to soccer in the South Sound date back to his days as a player at Lincoln High School. His passion for the sport fueled his decision to purchase the rights to the Tacoma Stars branding and logos in 2014, and was involved in the team’s rise to the Major Arena Soccer League that same season.

Lane’s contributions to soccer in the South Sound include partnering with Seattle Sounders FC to establish successful player development franchises such as Sounders Women and Sounders U-23. He currently serves as lease holder and benefactor of the non-profit Tacoma Soccer Center.

Outside of his work on the pitch, Lane serves as the Chief Financial Officer and co-owner of Datec Inc., a well-regarded and locally owned enterprise infrastructure provider, systems integrator, and IT professional services company.
