The New York Mets announced on Thursday that Sandy Alderson will step down as President at the conclusion of a search for his successor. At that time, Alderson will shift to a new role as special advisor to owners Steve and Alex Cohen and the senior leadership team.
“When I asked Sandy to come back to the team, it was for a defined period of time and with a specific mandate – revive our culture and this iconic franchise for our fans, partners, and employees,” Mets Owner, Chairman, and CEO Steve Cohen said. “Sandy has done those very things and more and we have begun a search for his successor. When we find that person, I have asked Sandy to continue in a new role as special advisor to me and the senior leadership team.”
“For me personally and for the organization, it’s the right time for this transition,” Alderson said. “We are having a successful season, we have made several key additions to our senior leadership team and we have built a strong and forward-thinking culture. When the time comes, I am looking forward to continuing to support Steve, Alex, and the organization in a new role.”
