Great people, lots of fun at a party. Would have the same business results as Perez.

Business, in the end, has to be business.
My point was that the board keeps Perez on, with ample evidence before them that he is apparently not competent.

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.
