Chapter 471 Immediate Troubles of the New Post
“Silence! That’s enough!” Tristan shouted.
Both Jyn and Cory immediately fell silent.
“Jyn, what Cory said was right. Morrison Group doesn’t belong to you alone. It belongs to the entire family. I won’t let Morrison Group fall into such a crisis! You’ll stay at home from now on, and Cory will handle the company’s affairs.”
Jyn became agitated. “You can’t do this, Dad!”
She never expected that her dad would actually remove her as the CEO.
She was the only reason Morrison Group had become what it was today. It might have remained as a small company if not for her efforts.
Tristan waved his hands. “Alright, that’s enough. I’ve already made my decision.”
“You’re not making sense, Dad! I can’t accept this!” Jyn shouted as she turned to leave.
Tristan shook his head at Jyn’s grumpy attitude.
He wouldn’t have done something like this if not for the sake of the family
He had always favored his daughter the most.
He understood how much of a whiplash it was for Jyn to suddenly lose all of her authority.
But as the head of the Morrison family, he had no other choice.
Morrison Group wasn’t completely up to Jyn’s or his decisions alone. It also consisted of many shareholders.
Tristan had to take into account the opinions of these shareholders.
Cory was elated. “Thanks, Dad!”
Tristan replied, “It’s still too early to thank me. You won’t be the next CEO if you can’t drive Southlake Corporation out of Dhord City.”
“Relax, Dad. I won’t fail Morrison Group like Jyn did just for a man. I’ll definitely drive
Southlake Corporation away!” Cory declared with confidence.
Tristan waved his hand. “I hope you’re right. Anyway, let me be alone for a while.”
“Sure!” Cory answered and hurriedly left.
He walked out to find Jyn squatting on the ground and crying.
He deliberately walked over and smiled at her. “Why so sad, Jyn? Dad just wanted you to stay
“Fuck off! I don’t want to see your face!” Jyn replied as she wiped her tears.
Cory wasn’t angry at all, even after Jyn had just shouted at him.
He had finally achieved his goal after all.
“You should just give up already, Jyn. You’re just tiring yourself out even if you continue to Try. Morrison Group is mine now, and I’ll eventually become the head of the entire Morrison family!” Cory snorted at her before leaving with a smug face.
Jyn stared angrily at Cory’s back. “Don’t get cocky just yet, Cory. Dealing with Southlake Corporation isn’t as easy as you may think.”
Meanwhile, in the CEO’s office of Morrison Group, Cory sat on the boss‘ chair with an
expression of complacency.
He finally claimed the position he had been thinking about for years.
He couldn’t hide his excitement over becoming the CEO of Morrison Group.
“Mr. Morrison, I’ve always known you would be the head of the Morrison family. Someone like Jyn couldn’t even compare to you,” Ginger said attentively as she stood by his side.
She immediately defected her loyalty to Cory the moment she learned that Jyn had lost her position as the CEO.
Jyn’s era was over, and Cory would become the head of the Morrisons.
Cory glanced at Ginger and was disgusted by the scars on her face.
He waved his hand and said, “That’s enough. Alert everyone for a meeting immediately!”
Ginger became slightly sad. “Yes, sir!”
She didn’t dare to say anything else and left the room.
Ten minutes later, in Morrison Group’s meeting room, both majority and minority shareholders, along with some executives, were called in for the meeting.
Everyone attending the meeting was the backbone of Morrison Group.
Cory sat on the CEO’s seat with a serious face. “I’m sure everyone knows about the current situation of Morrison Group. We’re currently facing a crisis.”
It was the first time that Morrison Group had run into trouble ever since they became the largest conglomerate within the city.
Southlake Corporation was invading their territory in full swing, and Morrison Group’s
It would have been disastrous for the company.
“Mr. Morrison, this is all Jyn’s fault.”
“That’s right! Jyn caused us to lose so much money. How are you going to resolve this?”
“We demand suitable compensation, or we’ll have to consider electing an actually capable CEO.
The shareholders present began to express their dissatisfaction after Cory finished his words.
Morrison Group never took its shareholders seriously throughout its rapid growth over the
The shareholders were now trying to use this opportunity to get the company to hand over more shares.
Cory frowned as he realized the shareholders were targeting him to look for trouble right after he became the CEO.
He was furious as he declared, “Who do you think you are? When did you think you could tell me what to do?”
Cory took a closer look at the shareholders. He realized that the ones making the most noise were the minority shareholders.
The Morrison family never cared about their opinions as the shares they held didn’t pose any threat to Morrison Group.
“What did you just say, Mr. Morrison? We’re also shareholders of Morrison Group! What do you mean that we don’t have a say?”
“We may be minority shareholders, but we still have the right to voice our opinions.”
“What’s this? The Morrison family thinks they can do whatever they want because they have the majority of the shares?”
Cory’s reply had angered them.
If the Morrison family tried to call the shots all by themselves, the minority shareholders would surely band together to deal with them.
Other shareholders looked at Cory and awaited his answer. They were very interested in seeing how he would resolve the issue.
These minority shareholders wouldn’t have been so arrogant if the CEO was still Jyn herself.
But Cory was just some nobody who became the CEO through family ties.
The atmosphere inside the meeting room was getting more and more tense by the minute.
The Morrison family might very well lose its control over the company if Cory couldn’t solve the current issue.
Cory suddenly smiled.
He had to make a move, or everyone might think he was an easy target after assuming the CEO’s position.
“You over there! Who the hell are you?” Cory bellowed as he pointed at one of the men who shouted the loudest earlier.
“I’m from the Blairs! We’re the third largest shareholder of Morrison Group!” The man declared with a smug expression.
“Oh?” Cory stood up and walked toward the man.
Cory then grabbed the man by his collar, startling the latter.
“What do you think you’re doing, Cory? Let go of your hand!” the man shouted. He was shocked that Cory would approach him like this.
