Someone you’ve never met or heard of would like to inform the entire company that someone else you’ve never met or heard of will be replacing yet another person you’ve never met or heard of in a position that you were not even aware existed nor would you be likely to notice if it simply ceased to exist.
The replacement has a long history of successfully doing jobs you are not aware of and seems to have had almost zero impact on your life or the lives of anyone you know.
One thing is certain, all of these very important people make a lot more money than most of you and therefore you need to know all this so that you may display the appropriate deference on the extremely slim chance that you ever actually do meet any of these very important people.
The beatings will continue until morale improves. That is all.
