A sign of the times,take a look at http://247wallst.com/2012/08/06/outr...antonio-perez/ sad but it happens to Much.
Perez has managed to do something nearly impossible.
He's equally pissed off film customers, digital customers, commercial customers, employees, retirees, suppliers, vendors, institutional investors, individual investors, engineers, marketers, PR people (what happened to Colleen??), middle management, Wall Street analysts, bankers, the citizens of Rochester, Paul Simon, my dog,* and just about everyone on APUG.
And he's still in charge after having been publicly labeled as one of the worst CEOs of the year.
Looking back, it's an astounding accomplishment, really...
* He used Kodachrome too.
The president of the US likes him and the EK Board likes him! :D
There is a whole raft of people that I know and like very much; that I would never hire.
Great people, lots of fun at a party. Would have the same business results as Perez.
Business, in the end, has to be business. :cry:
The President of the US likes him on his "jobs" council, when in fact, Perez is laying people off and moving work overseas.
Having met Perez in person, I can say that he is a very pleasant person. Very much "presence" and very convincing. That last comment is very important in the present situation.
It doesn't matter. Firing Perez at this point would be like firing the captain of the Titanic after they've already hit the iceberg.
Throwing him off the sinking ship first, however, would no doubt provide some small satisfaction.
There was no one who could have stepped up and fired him? Emperor for life?
