Chapter 138: So Arrogant
Lina hurried to the CEO's office, only to find Melissa sitting on the sofa.
When their eyes met, Lina was surprised for a short moment.
With her shrewdness, she knew at once that something was wrong. However, she maintained a calm
expression on her face and asked said the CEO politely, “Mr. Zhao, what can I do for you?"
“Lina, here's the thing...”
The CEO nodded and glanced at Melissa. "I heard that a subordinate in your department has
disrespected Ms. Su. Is this true?"
Although she had guessed that Melissa got her here for nothing good, she had never expected that this
woman would even turn to the CEO to deal with Rosiley.
"Mr. Zhao, Rosiley did say something back to Ms. Su. But that was not disrespect. She just slipped up.
I will criticize her after I come back.”
Lina pondered over the wording and smoothed over the thing that happened a few days ago casually
with few words.
Eyes turning icy at her explanation, Melissa warned Lina, "Ms. Lina, think twice before you say it and
don't ruin your career. Don't make mistakes yourself. Everyone saw how Rosiley disrespected her
boss. Keeping such people in TEG will only corrupt the spirit of the company.”
Lina shook her head inwardly. Melissa was determined to drive Rosiley away!
But as Rosiley's supervisor, she was unable to change the decision. So she simply put on a serious
expression and said in a low voice, "Ms. Su, you're exaggerating. Rosiley has always been self-
disciplined and earnest in her work and is more competent than other employees. She is a rare talent.
Coupled with her hard work and excellent achievements over years, I can't find a reason to chase her
out of the company. *
Not expecting that Lina would choose Rosiley's side, Melissa's expression turned cold, “Mr. Zhao, what
do you think of this? I was invited to TEG to manage the company and bring the company to another
peak. But the premise is that I'm respected by employees. I have only been here for a few days and my
subordinate has repeatedly compromised my authority. So is the
general manager of TEG no longer respectable anymore? If that's the case, perhaps I should consider
going somewhere else.”
Melissa said condescendingly and straightforwardly with a frosty look.
She regarded herself condescending here. But instead of being complimented, she was disrespected,
which she would never forgive.
The Chairman curled his lips at Melissa's words.
He knew that Melissa wanted to punish Rosiley as a warning to others, but he didn't want her, an
excellent manager in the industry, to leave so easily. Moreover, she had AR Gruop, and the Ji Group
backing her. As for Rosiley, the CEO was in dilemma. The young lady seemed to have some unknown
relationship with REG.
Neither side could be offended. He didn't know what he could do as CEO.
Frowning silently for a moment, he finally decided to leave it to others. He waved his hands and cast
the problem to Lina. "Lina, you are Rosiley's boss. You should communicate with Melissa about it. No
matter what, she is the general manager and Rosiley's behavior of acting against her is still
Lina was at a loss for words.
Even the CEO couldn't decide at this critical moment. How could she negotiate with Melissa?
Melissa had made it clear that she wanted to expel Rosiley by her power from the very beginning.
Lina's position was not as high as hers, so there was no point negotiating with her.
However, Lina was unwilling to stand watch Rosiley being fired.
Lina came from a humble root so she understood more about Rosiley's hardworking.
How could she have the heart to join hands with Melissa to suppress such a talent?
Just as Lina was caught between the problems, the door to the office was suddenly pushed open from
the outside. immediately after, an icy cold voice was heard by the three inside, "Mr. Zhao, that's not a
good attitude to your job!"
A very good-looking man entered the office. He looked around twenty-five or sixteen years old.
Wearing a well-tailored suit, the man looked handsome and noble. He seemed to be accustomed to
being powerful and his aura was too sharp to be ignored.
The man strode in from the outside, his condescending attitude resulting in the raise of eyebrows from
"Mr. Shen, why didn't you tell me you're here. If I knew, I could have welcomed you personally.”
The CEO smiled and came forward with a flattering expression, surprising both Melissa and Lina.
"No need to do so.”
The man smiled faintly and strode to sit down beside the chairman's seat. He crossed his legs casually
and sneered, "You are not qualified to be the CEO. You're not decisive enough and can't even handle
such a trifle. I don't think there's any need for you to keep your position as the CEO. From tomorrow
onwards, you don't need to go to work anymore. Just be a shareholder.”
"Please forgive me, Mr. Shen. It was my fault.”
CEO Zhao said awkwardly, covered in a cold sweat.
Lina and Melissa were dumbfounded.
Who was this person? Even CEO Zhao had to bow and scrape to him.
Frowning, Melissa finally stepped forward and asked, “Mr. Zhao, this is...?"
"Why are you still standing there doing nothing? This is our new president. Come greet him.”
CEO Zhao couldn't help but reprimand them.
Lina and Melissa were shocked.
This was their new president, Maddox?
"To be specific, from today onwards, I am not only the president of TEG but also the owner of the
company. As for Mr. Zhao, he will not be a CEO from tomorrow onwards. Also, I heard what you were
talking about just now."
Placing his hands on the table, Maddox glanced at Melissa indifferently and said, "In my company,
there is no such thing as suppressing employees by power. Everything has to follow my rules. Anyone
who dares to bully his or her subordinates would be fired!"
His announcement was simple, but domineering and extremely arrogant.
CEO Zhao's wrinkled face stiffened.
Melissa's face was twisted.
Lina was even more shocked.
Rumor had it that their president had been changed, but she never heard that the owner of TEG had
also been replaced!
But it felt not bad. Most importantly, this newly appointed president did not seem to have any intention
of driving Rosiley away!
"OK. There's nothing else. You two can leave now. Coby Smith, you stay.”
Maddox dismissed them with a wave of his hand.
Lina bowed and left the office quickly.
Reluctant, Melissa wanted to argue but was given no chance from Maddox.
