As was first reported by the Boston Globe, Red Sox Chief Operating Officer Mike Dee is leaving the organization to take the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Miami Dolphins and Dolphin Stadium. Here is the statement released by the Sox: “The departure of Mike Dee marks a great loss for the Boston Red Sox, and other NESV affiliates,” said Principal Owner John Henry. “His rare combination of imagination and ingenuity has helped this franchise reach historic milestones on and off the field. His work with Fenway Sports Group and Roush Fenway Racing were critical to the growth and success of those entities, and his work with every facet of NESV set high standards of excellence across the board.”
“The strength of this organization comes from its people, and the success of the Red Sox demonstrates the impact that a creative individual like Mike Dee can have on a franchise and its fans,” said Chairman Tom Werner. “Mike played a key leadership role in one of the most productive front office teams in Major League Baseball. His indefatigable nature ensured that our partners, sponsors, and fans always received the highest possible value for their investment in this team.”
“Mike and I have enjoyed a deep friendship and built strong professional bonds since we met in Baltimore over 15 years ago, and I will miss him in both capacities,” said President/CEO Larry Lucchino. “Mike is a good, fun guy, and our accomplishments in San Diego and Boston are in a major way attributable to his broad talents and dedication. He is one of the most creative, versatile, and energetic executives in all of sports; the Miami Dolphins could not have selected a better person for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of them. For this position, Mike Dee is a bona fide first round draft pick.”
