San Diego Padres President and CEO Mike Dee is leaving the Padres, the team announced on Wednesday.
The team’s executive chairman Ron Fowler and Managing Partner Peter Seidler issued a one-sentence statement that Dee was departing. No reason was given.
“The Padres and Mike Dee have amicably parted ways. We thank Mike for his contributions and wish him and his family all the best. Consistent with our policy not to comment on personnel matters, we have no further comment," Fowler and Managing Partner Peter Seidler said on Nov. 23.
Dee became the Padres’ president in 2013. Dee previously worked for the Padres from 1995 to 2002 in part as executive vice president of business affairs.
He left the Padres in 2002 to take a front office job with the Red Sox.
He returned to San Diego after spending four years with the Miami Dolphins.
“I wish to thank Ron Fowler and Peter Seidler for the opportunity to lead the Padres over the last three years. I wish them and the entire organization well in what I believe is a very bright future that lies ahead," Dee said in a statement.
