The Chicago White Sox officially promoted Rick Hahn to general manager and Ken Williams to executive vice president, the team announced Friday. "Rick's promotion (from assistant GM) is very well deserved," White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in a statement. "He's one of the most respected young executives in baseball today and that reputation is well earned given his relationships with other team executives, players, agents, manager Robin Ventura and our coaches, members of the media and White Sox fans. Kenny and Rick together have worked very successfully over the past 12 seasons, and I am excited to see this dynamic grow and expand as Rick assumes more day-to-day authority and responsibility while Kenny is allowed to focus even more on macro issues, talent evaluation and long-term planning for the organization." Hahn, 41, will oversee all player personnel matters, coaching staff decisions, player development and scouting operations, Williams will remain involved in baseball decisions, but will have less contact with the media and agents, as has been his stated preference. "As most people are aware, Rick has been indispensable to me as assistant general manager over the past 12 seasons," Williams said in a statement. "He already plays a prominent role representing the White Sox publicly and within baseball. I am very proud of Rick's growth since he joined our front office, and this promotion rewards his talents, hard work and commitment toward our organization's goal of bringing Chicago another World Series title."
