The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 124
Stanton Corporation. Inside the meeting room.
The crowd looked at the big shots sitting at the head of the conference table. Floyd Stanton sat there lazily while getting some shuteye as he assuredly left Grant to preside over this meeting.
Grant said a few opening remarks and started to introduce Nicole.
Nicole let down her hair in front of her forehead to hide the wound from last night’s accident so that it would not look so conspicuous.
“I believe that everyone here already knows that Nicole is my father’s daughter and my sister. She’s also the largest shareholder of Stanton Corporation now. Therefore, I hereby announce that Nicole Stanton will be the Chief Executive Officer of Stanton Corporation effective immediately. I believe everyone has no opinions on this, right?“
The largest commanding shareholder!
The total number of shares from everyone present was not even comparable to Nicole’s shares. Thus, no one dared to have any opinion on this.
In hindsight, many directors present were relieved that they did not follow Micah Zielinski’s lead in the “revolt“. Otherwise, they would not be sitting here at this moment.
Everyone was just incredibly thankful for having escaped a disaster!
“Congratulations, Executive Director Nicole! “
Everyone began to applaud and welcome Nicole.
Nicole smiled and was happy about her promotion from Vice President Nicole to Executive Director Nicole. Grant had it specially arranged so that she would have a smooth transition into her role as CEO.
Even so, there was no conflict with Grant’s position as the President. Grant still held substantial power in his hands.
It was just that Nicole was now in charge of a much broader range of businesses.
No matter what, she was now the domineering CEO Nicole Stanton!
When she left the conference room, Logan greeted her and handed her the phone. “President Nicole, this is the apology letter just released by Ferguson Corporation.“
Nicole raised her eyebrows. ‘So soon?’
She thought that with Old Master Ferguson’s temper, they would drag it for at least ten days or half a month.
Nicole simply swept a glance, let out a light laugh, then turned off the screen. This apology was indeed artful.
They managed to clarify her scandal in a few words and even made a formal evaluation of their marriage without the slightest emotion and feelings.
She could tell at a glance that this was Eric’s handiwork.
“Do we need a response from our side?“
Nicole swept a glance at Logan. “No, there’s no need to make a statement anymore.”
“Yes, ma’am. Also, J&L Corporation is starting the selection of research programs. Mr. Lichman wants all three parties to send their candidates to J&L Corporation until the program is finalized. Once the finished product is released, they plan to immediately announce the good news to the world for the greatest advantage.“
Nicole nodded. She felt energized when she thought of J&L’s project. Since this was the first project since she started working at Stanton Corporation as Vice President, she would cherish it like her own child.
Logan paused and added, “There’s still the issue of selecting our R&D candidates. So far, we still haven’t finalized the candidates who are qualified to join J& L’s R&D team. Why don’t we put out a school recruitment notice to see if there are any suitable candidates from universities?“
Nicole smiled. “No need. I already have a candidate in mind.“
She walked away cheerfully and looked back at Logan. “My brother must’ve arranged a lot of things
for me recently. If you can, try to push it off. I want to participate in the selection of this J&L research program myself.“
‘It’ll be a bummer if Ferguson Corporation stole the opportunity when I’m not looking! ‘
Nicole would not compromise on anything relating to the interests of her company.
Logan dared not object and said, “Yes, ma’am. By the way, do you want to go through the list of gifts you’ve bought that will be distributed to the staff?“
Nicole shook her head. “You guys can arrange it as you see fit.“
Anyway, her only responsibility in this was spending money.
Logan paused. “Is your wound alright?“
No one knew about her injury except for Logan. Otherwise, Nicole would not have forced herself to attend this meeting.
Nicole subconsciously touched the wound.
“It’s fine. I’ve seen the doctor. It’s just a minor scrape. I’m not that fragile.“
“The report of the investigation has already been placed on your desk.“
“I just need a name.“ Nicole was curious to know who wanted her dead.
“Wendy Quade,“ Logan replied.
Nicole hooked her lips into a cold smirk and did not say a word.
