San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego Padres named Mike Dee team president and chief executive officer on Wednesday.

Dee returns to the franchise for which he worked from 1995-2002, where he worked up from director of corporate development to senior vice president of business affairs.

"We are ecstatic to bring Mike back to San Diego as our president and CEO," said team chairman Ron Fowler and executive chairman Peter Seidler in a joint statement. "He has the experience, passion and intellect to drive this organization to great success. All of these qualities, combined with his familiarity with our community and his legendary energy, are going to assure exciting times for Padres' fans."

Dee arrives from Miami, where he served as CEO of the Miami Dolphins and their home stadium since May of 2009. He also worked in the Boston Red Sox organization from 2002-09, attaining the role of chief operating officer in 2004.

"I am thrilled to be coming home to San Diego -- an extraordinary community that has always been very special to me," said Dee. "The Padres organization is where I started my sports career nearly two decades ago, and I am grateful to Ron and Peter for the opportunity to return to my roots."
