Rick Hahn is the Vice-President/General Manager of the Chicago White Sox.

In July 2011, SportsIllustrated.com ranked Hahn as the #1 General Manager Candidate in Major League Baseball.[1] Similarly, in March, 2010, Baseball America named Hahn the #1 General Manager prospect in Baseball.[2][3] And, during the 2008 season, BaseballProspectus.com had named Hahn one of the top-ten GM candidates in the game.[4]

Following the 2007 season, Hahn withdrew his name from consideration for the General Manager's job of the St. Louis Cardinals, who eventually named John Mozeliak to the position,[5] and he also declined the opportunity to interview for the Pittsburgh Pirates GM job prior to Neal Huntington being named to that post.[6] Additionally, the White Sox declined Hahn permission to interview for the Seattle Mariners GM job following the 2008 season.[7]

Hahn is a graduate of the University of Michigan, Harvard Law School and Kellogg Graduate School of Management (Northwestern University).[8]
