MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 84
Although all the mid-level managers present were very much looking forward to this result, everyone was still extremely astonished when Flynn announced it.
After all, it was not the dismissal of one or two people but nearly a hundred executives and upper management staff!
It would cause great turbulence in any company!
Besides, most of the absent senior managers, directors, and executives were people close to the Huttons. Wasn’t Flynn afraid that he would completely anger the Huttons?
Apart from Cohen, who was elated to be directly promoted to the director of the HR department, everyone else in the conference room was worried.
“Mr. Davis, is it really appropriate to do this? After all, there are nearly a hundred executives and upper management staff. If all of them are dismissed at once, I’m afraid the company will be thrown into jeopardy, and in no time, it will result in great losses to the company!”
“Yes, Mr. Davis, many of the corporation’s businesses are still controlled by them. If they’re all dismissed, it will result in an extremely serious impact on the company! We will lose lots of clients as well.”
“The impact of this is too severe. I’m afraid the companies cooperating with the Stardust Corporation will think the company is suffering great turmoil after hearing about this. They might even suspend or cease cooperation with our company. I’m afraid the company’s stock price will also fluctuate greatly. The consequences are too serious…”
“Yes, I’m afraid that the company’s future development plan will stagnate or even regress. There might be great upheaval in the company…”
The mid-level managers of every department spoke worriedly.
They indeed said these things out of concern for the development of the Stardust Corporation and not to make excuses or plead for those who were absent.
Flynn looked at the people speaking. He found that he could nurture and promote them since they could still think for the company at this time.
But Flynn naturally wouldn’t consider their opinions.
He raised his hand to silence the discussion and suggestions of these people. He merely said resolutely, “The chairman has already approved of the dismissals, so just do as I’ve instructed. I will consider the other matters.”
Hearing Flynn suddenly mention the chairman, the people below the stage were immediately surprised.
Could this decision be made by the new chairman who has never appeared?
Flynn had already said that he had obtained the chairman’s approval, and his attitude was firm, so the others could only keep their mouths shut.
Flynn took a sweeping glance around the room again before saying solemnly, “Regarding the new personnel appointments, after Mr. Cohen gives me the list of staff to be dismissed, I will decide and issue the official document before tomorrow. I will post it on the company’s official website. Pay attention to it when the time comes!
“That’s it for today’s meeting. Meeting adjourned!”
Upon hearing that the new personnel appointments would be issued tomorrow, everyone present was excited and agitated.
Since the senior staff had all been dismissed, it was their chance to be promoted!
“Hah, Flynn Davis, you’re really acting like you call the shots just because you’ve been given some authority! Can the Huttons be dismissed by you just because you say so?” A cold and indifferent voice came from the entrance of the conference room.
A young man dressed luxuriously with a cold expression on his face slowly stepped into the conference room.
There was a large group of people behind the young man. It was probably close to a hundred people, and they were all the upper management staff and executives absent from the meeting for various reasons!
Lucas, sitting in the corner of the front row, had a menacing killing intent in his eyes when he saw the young man. But he soon restrained it, and his dark eyes became calm again.
The young man was Jace Hutton, Lucas’s half-brother and the current successor of the Huttons!
Jace was no stranger to Lucas. After all, Lucas and his mother had lived in the Hutton residence until he was eight years old, so he had naturally met Jace multiple times.
At the time, Jace was extremely hostile to Lucas, his half-brother, and often teased and bullied him, even though he was still very young then.
Later, when Lucas and his mother were driven out of the Huttons and warned never to return to DC again, Jace’s mother actually had something to do with it.
The various troubles that Lucas had encountered in Orange County were caused by the people sent by Jace.
It could be said that Lucas and Jace were more like enemies rather than half-brothers.
After Jace stepped into the conference room, he glanced at Lucas with great hatred.
But he similarly controlled his emotions and quickly shifted his gaze to look at Flynn, who was at the front of the conference room.
After all, Jace was the former chairman of the Stardust Corporation, so almost everyone present knew him. Once they saw Jace appear with a look of displeasure, they felt a foreboding hunch, and their hearts were full of panic.
It was because they knew that Jace appearing with all the absentees meant that he was representing the Huttons and standing behind them.
In that case, with the Huttons’ interference, the orders Flynn just issued were probably never going to be implemented.
These upper management staff and executives would also return to their original positions with the support of the Huttons.
On the contrary, the ones attending the meeting would probably be treated as traitors and face suppression. They might even be forced out of the Stardust Corporation.
When the mid-level managers thought of these consequences, their hearts immediately sank. They were all full of anxiousness and panic.
“Mr. Hutton.” Flynn’s expression changed drastically upon seeing the young man.
He stood up from his seat and said nervously, “Mr. Hutton, these people standing behind you were absent from an important meeting without a valid reason. They disobeyed the corporation’s management system, so according to the company’s rules, I have the right to dismiss them.”
Faced with Jace, the successor of the Huttons, Flynn felt extremely stressed, and large beads of cold sweat trickled down his face.
Jace glanced at Flynn and questioned with a gloomy and threatening voice, “What did you say? I didn’t seem to hear you clearly. Repeat yourself.”
