Probably won't have any effect on the Lotte arm of baseball operations, but I figured it deserved at least a mention.

Quote:

[Takayuki] Tsukuda, a 65-year-old one-time employee of former Sumitomo Bank, assumed the presidency on Wednesday following his resignation as Royal Hotel's chairman in June. He replaces Lotte founder Takeo Shigemitsu, who will take up the position of chairman.
