SSG Landers explained the sudden resignation of former manager Ryu Seon-gyu, the quick appointment of new manager Kim Seong-yong that followed, and the suspicion of a ‘non-powerful person’ who was pointed out as behind it.
On the afternoon of the 14th, the SSG club announced a statement in the name of CEO Min Kyung-sam. Through this statement, CEO Min Kyung-sam explained the process of changing his leader and the suspicion of a ‘secret powerhouse’.
CEO Min Kyung-sam said, “On the 12th, general manager Ryu Seon-gyu expressed his gratitude and quickly appointed a successor for the stability of the organization. According to the decision of the CEO and the board of directors, the club appointed Sung-yong Kim, head of the Futures R&D center, as the new manager.” Former general manager Ryu Seon-gyu played a role in achieving the wire-to-wire unified championship this year. I was very disappointed that the intention to resign was stubborn, saying, ‘I have fulfilled my duty by achieving the goal of rebuilding the team for two years.’
At the same time, he drew a line, saying, “The club has selected the right person for the future through a normal decision-making process and opinion convergence. The suspicion that some people are raising is not true.”
Representative Min Kyung-sam emphasized, “The person mentioned by some is just one of those who serve as an advisor, and is not in any position to be involved in the personnel management or management of the club.” The following is the full text of the statement.
I would like to 토토사이트 express my position on behalf of the SSG Landers baseball team regarding the appointment of a new general manager.
On December 12th, general manager Ryu Seon-kyu expressed his gratitude, and a successor was quickly appointed to stabilize the organization.
According to the decision of the CEO and the board of directors, the club appointed Kim Seong-yong, head of SSG Landers Futures R&D Center, as the new general manager.
General Manager Ryu Seon-kyu played a role in achieving the ‘Wire-to-Wire’ combined victory this season, so it was regrettable that he was stubborn in saying, “I fulfilled my duty by achieving the goal of rebuilding the team for two years.”
As revealed in the press release, the club has appointed the right person for the future through a normal decision-making process and opinion convergence. That’s why the suspicion of ‘non-profit’ raised by some is not true.
With the full support of the parent group, SSG Landers achieved a unified victory with the team and the front team united. As a corporation and due to the nature of the baseball team, where hierarchies and autonomy coexist, it would not have been possible to achieve good grades as well as the operation itself with abnormal operation.
The club took over and established in a short time. Accordingly, we receive advice from many people inside and outside the baseball world, such as baseball veterans, related workers, media officials, managers, and public institutions, and reflect them in our operation.
However, as the baseball team is also a corporation, the subject of personnel and operation is clearly specified, and decisions are made through the board of directors centered on the CEO.
The person who is mentioned in some is also just one of those who play an advisory role, and is not in any position to be involved in the personnel or operation of the club.
We apologize for causing concern as a result at a time when we need to prepare for a better next year. We will reorganize the baseball team and do our best to win the championship next year. We will make SSG Landers loved by fans.
