[1]CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago White Sox are promoting three of their top front-office personnel.

Rick Hahn, who has been with the team since 2000, was promoted Friday to senior vice president/general manager. Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf also tabbed Howard Pizer as senior executive vice president, and longtime senior vice president/general manager Ken Williams was promoted to executive vice president.

Williams is the fourth-longest tenured GM in baseball. He just completed his 12th season, a run that included a World Series championship in 2005 that ended an 87-year drought.

Hahn has been credited with negotiating contracts with Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Gavin Floyd along with signing first-round picks Gordon Beckham and Chris Sale. He will now oversee all player personnel matters, coaching staff decisions and both player development and scouting operations.
