White Sox rearrange front office, promote Kenny Williams, Rick Hahn

David Banks

Hahn will become the general manager for the White Sox after assisting Kenny Williams for the past 12 seasons.

The Chicago White Sox have promoted Rick Hahn to the general manager position, while his predecessor, Kenny Williams, will fill the role of executive vice president, the team announced during a press conference on Friday.

Hahn spent 12 seasons under Williams before the promotion, as he'll now fill the seat that Williams assumed in October of 2000. At the press conference the team said that while Williams will stay with the team, the decision making of the franchise will now transition to Hahn.

As a player, Williams played four seasons with the White Sox before playing out the few remaining years of his career with the Tigers, Blue Jays and Expos. Hahn has no prior playing experience at a professional level.

The White Sox finished the 2012 season with an 85-77 record that landed them the second spot in the AL Central, three games behind the Detroit Tigers. Chicago had the division lead late in the season but lost it.
