From PR intern to Assistant GM. Pretty good story! Antony does a ton for the team!

Makes one a bit jealous when he describes it as a dream job he actually didn't aspire to. Surely he is underselling the difficulties he's had throughout his career, but Anthony is almost selling it like all he had to do was ask for an internship, after that he has just been given promotions unrequested ever since.
Souhan/Anthony probably could have provided some anecdotes or allusions to "hard work" and "dedication" found in most profile pieces because surely Anthony wouldn't have risen to this position simply by showing up to work every day.

I would agree the article suggests Antony has always been more focused on doing his current job well than on climbing the next rung of the ladder, and it was others who saw something in him that they thought made him well-suited for a promotion.

I'm confused. Is this story saying he's moved from assistant GM to VP? So from baseball operations side to business side? Did I forget this happened?
