Dozer resigns from Diamondbacks post, Hall appointed to succeed as president of club
PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks today announced that Rich Dozer, who was named the club's President when Major League Baseball awarded Arizona an expansion baseball franchise on March 9, 1995, has resigned and that Derrick Hall has been named to succeed him as President. Dozer and Hall will work together during a transitional period this month prior to Dozer being available to the team as an organizational consultant starting October 1.
During his 11 1/2-year tenure with the club, Dozer helped lead the organization that became the youngest expansion franchise to win a championship by doing so in just their fourth season of play after defeating the New York Yankees in the 2001 World Series. Dozer spent eight seasons with the Phoenix Suns prior to working for the Diamondbacks, joining the NBA franchise in July 1987 as business manager and eventually ascending to Vice President and Chief Operating Officer by June 1989. He also served as President of the America West Arena and was intimately involved in the facility's development. The former Certified Public Accountant also specialized as an audit manager for clients in sports, hospitality and retail industries.
