The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 63
The meeting room was dead silent for a full minute.
Micah Zielinski’s face was red and did not expect that Nicole would turn the gun on them. He said, “It’s not…“
Nicole interrupted him without a care. “I believe that you’ve all received notice this morning that I’m managing everything in the company in Mr. Stanton’s absence. I ‘m in charge of this project, so from now on, if you don’t want to be a part of it, hand me your letter of resignation immediately.
Your positions will be replaced by your deputies. I will explain everything to Mr. Stanton.“
The people in the room were shocked and silenced. They had all stepped over each other to climb to their department head positions and their deputies were eyeing their spots. It was a sought-after position, so no one dared to act rashly at this moment.
Although they could not stand the fact that Nicole had parachuted into her Vice President position, they could all tell how much Grant Stanton supported her since the first day she arrived. They knew that they could not afford to offend Nicole.
They all began to regret getting incited by Micah Zielinski to pull Nicole off her high horse.
The air in the conference room was cold and suffocating. No one dared to make a sound. Micah Zielinski also felt that he had lost the momentum as no one dared to make things difficult for Nicole at this time.
“Planning Department, can you come up with the proposal by today?“
The Head of the Planning Department, Don Smith, was named and raised his head sharply. “Yes, Vice President Nicole. The Planning Department will come up with the best plan in the fastest time possible immediately after this meeting. We certainly won’t delay the project’s progress.“
Those who had climbed to these positions were all old-timers who were shrewd and adaptable.
Since Nicole gave them a chance, they would take it. Otherwise, it would be their loss.
Nicole nodded in satisfaction and looked at the others. Her voice was not as stern anymore. “What about the other departments?“
“We’ll research it immediately. We won’t let the company down! “
“Yes, same here.“
“Of course, we’ve been prepared for this a long time ago. We’ll do a good job! “
Everyone’s declaration of support instantly eased the atmosphere in the meeting room. Nicole did not look so ice -cold anymore and resumed her gentle temperament as they continued the discussion.
They were in fact all well prepared for the meeting. After all, they were all capable and sensible enough to manage their respective departments in such a large corporation.
Micah Zielinski and Samantha Lindt, who had been deliberately neglected, sat on the side with glum faces.
Nicole did not care about them because their days in the company were numbered anyway.
Towards the end of the meeting, Nicole saw that it was almost time and said, “Although the core research team is from J&L Corporation, we must also be prepared. I’ve previously discussed this with Mr. Lichman. Even though we won’t be involved in the development of the core technology, he has agreed for us to send over two researchers to participate in the later development. We’ll provide two of our best- performing and reliable staff, so let’s start looking for suitable candidates. HR should pay more attention to this as well.“
Nicole was very satisfied with today’s meeting. At the end of the meeting, everyone wanted to stay and talk to her for a few minutes to build a closer relationship. Nicole responded to every one of them and smiled warmly, so much so that she seemed like a completely different person from her stern and cold persona earlier.
Logan hurriedly came over and whispered in her ear. “Vice President Nicole, the Chairman of Ferguson Corporation is here.“
Nicole raised an eyebrow. ‘That’s quick… Turns out Old Master Ferguson is more fretful than I imagined…’
After all, Old Master Ferguson was the Chairman of Ferguson Corporation, so Nicole could not ignore him out of respect for their company’s relations.
Nicole nodded and left the conference room.
“Is he waiting in the guest lounge?“ Nicole asked. Logan shook his head. “He went straight to your office.“
Nicole was slightly surprised, but she knew that Old Master Ferguson only came for the emerald pipe that was now with her.
She lowered her head and laughed, then pushed the door in. However, she did not expect Ingrid Ferguson to be sitting next to Old Master Ferguson.
“Rude! How can you come in without knocking first? “ Old Master Ferguson sat upright on the sofa and looked at the woman at the door with a cold face.
‘Is he trying to undermine me? I’ve just gone through this sh*t in the meeting and have to bear with this again?’
“Chairman Ferguson, I never knock when I come into my office.“
