Harris spent seven years in the Cubs office and was appointed assistant general manager in January last year. He has long been seen as a future general manager and was an integral part of the recent rise of the Cubs.

"We are delighted to be able to bring an executive of Scott's caliber to help lead our Baseball Operations group," said baseball operations president Farhan Zaidi in a statement. "The combination of his extensive experience, contributions to build a perennial contender winning a championship in Chicago and his roots in the Bay Area made him ideal for our position as general manager and I am eager to execute our vision together."

Harris is the tenth GG in the history of the Giants and the first one hired during Zaidi's tenure, which began last year. The Giants still need to find a manager to replace Bruce Bochy, who retired after finishing the 2019 season.

A native of Redwood City, California, Harris attended Columbia Business School while working for Major League Baseball as a major league league coordinator for two years before joining the Cubs in 2012.
