Kim Ng

Kim Ng is an American baseball executive for the Major League Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers organization. She was the youngest person, and first woman, to present a salary arbitration case in the major leagues when she worked for the Chicago White Sox, regarding the case of pitcher Alex Fernandez.

In 1997, she was hired by the New York Yankees as assistant general manager, which made her youngest in the major leagues, at age 29. She joined the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2001 as assistant GM.

Before joining the New York Yankees, she was in the offices of the American League, where she was director of waivers and records, approving all transactions. She began her career as a special projects analyst with the Chicago White Sox after graduating from the University of Chicago.

In November 2003, she was involved in an incident when New York Mets special assistant to the general manager Bill Singer mocked her ethnic Chinese background. (Her father was U.S.-born of Chinese descent and mother Thailand-born of Chinese descent.) Singer was dismissed for his remarks on November 18, 2003.

In 2005, Ng was interviewed for the vacant position of Dodgers general manager. No female has ever been a GM in any major sport, and she is believed to be the first female ever to even interview for a baseball GM position. The Dodgers hired Ned Colletti as their GM, who immediately kept Ng on as his assistant.

Undergraduate Education

Ng graduated from the University of Chicago, where she played softball for four years and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy. A native of Ridgewood, NJ, she resides in Silver Lake, CA with her husband Tony Markward. [http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/la/community/executives/ng.html]
