In March 2011, Kim Ng (pronounced ANG) became the Senior Vice-President for Baseball Operations with Major League Baseball. Prior to that, Ng was the Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers for nine seasons. She is one of only two female executives in Major League Baseball to have held such a position in baseball operations and was the first woman to interview for a general manager's position in Major League history when she did so with the Dodgers in 2005. In her 12 seasons as an assistant general manager, she reached the postseason eight times, the LCS six times and won three World Championships.
Ng's primary responsibilities with the Dodgers was to assist General Manager Ned Colletti in all facets of Major League player acquisitions - making trades, signing free agents and negotiating contracts. In addition to coordinating player transactions, she oversaw the club's arbitration efforts and managed the day-to-day operations of the baseball department including the research, video, clubhouse and team travel divisions.
Her tenure at the Dodgers was highlighted by dramatic improvement in scouting and player development, leading to numerous accolades including 2006 Organization of the Year honors by Baseball America. The publication also called Ng a top general manager prospect in its "Best Tools" issue.
In 2004, along with her other duties, Ng assumed the interim position of Director of Player Development and was responsible for overseeing the Dodgers' Minor League department, including developing and evaluating all players in the farm system, appointing minor league managers and coaching staff and overseeing the club's winter ball participation and relationships between the Dodgers and their minor league affiliates.
In 2008, Ng was a finalist for the GM position in Seattle. Considered one of the future leaders of baseball, Ng was recently tabbed one of "10 to Watch" by Baseball America in its 25th anniversary issue saluting the most influential people in the game. Additionally, she was featured by Newsweek during its year-end "Who's Next?" edition in 2006.
In 2007, she was one of 20 fellows that were named to the Young Leaders Forum for the National Committee on United States-China relations and took part in a four-day retreat in Nanjing, China. The Young Leaders Forum (YLF) provides an opportunity to enhance the dialogue between the two countries and build lasting economic, geopolitical and cultural ties among the people of both nations.
Prior to joining the Dodgers, Ng served as Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the New York Yankees (1998 - 2001). At 29 years of age when hired by the Yankees, she was the youngest Assistant General Manager in Major League Baseball. In her four seasons with the Yankees, New York advanced to the World Series four times and won three World Championships.
Before her time with the Yankees' organization, Ng served as Director of Waivers and Records for the American League in 1997. She approved all player transactions and contracts and assisted American League General Managers to interpret and apply the Major League Rules and the Basic Agreement.
She began her career in baseball with the Chicago White Sox, serving as Special Projects Analyst (1991 - 1994) and was then promoted to Assistant Director of Baseball Operations in 1995. In those positions, she assisted in analyzing player tendencies, signing free agents, tracking Major League player movement, arbitration, negotiating contracts and budgeting.
Ng is on the Board of Directors for Kids in Sports Los Angeles, which creates community-led after-school sports programs for children and youth in underserved areas of Los Angeles County. The non-profit organization honored her in 2009 for her community efforts. Ng, who is of Chinese descent, was also honored in 2009 by the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California.
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.
