The Mets are dumping their head of human resources Holly Lindvall and general counsel David Cohen after law firm WilmerHale conducted a review of the franchise’s workplace culture.
Owner Steve Cohen announced the news in an email to Mets employees on Monday. Lindvall and Cohen will stay with the team during a transition period while the team looks to fill their roles.
The Mets hired WilmerHale after general manager Jared Porter was fired for harassing a female journalist in 2016 with lewd text messages while Porter was with the Cubs. Former Mets manager Mickey Callaway was also accused of harassing female reporters while he was with the club. Former minor league coordinator Ryan Ellis was let go after three women reported inappropriate conduct to human resources.
