AlcaLu's Next CEO?

5:00 AM -- Following Ray's excellent story about the likelihood of management changes at AlcaLu, a source contacted me and threw out another name in the Great AlcaLu CEO Hunt.

The source says to consider Hubert de Pesquidoux as a likely contender.

Why? The source says he's the most senior Alcatel exec left standing, he's French, and he's "loved by all", meaning he's popular both inside the company, as well as with customers in Europe and the U.S.

Agreed, from what I know of him. I know he's well traveled, too. I met him once at a media event staged in AlcaLu's Plano, Texas, offices. He was running Alcatel North America then. Now he's the CFO and has charge of AlcaLu's entire enterprise business.

Worked here and there? Check. Financial background? Check. French-born and Paris educated? Check. What am I missing here?

Oh, one thing. Why not an outsider to increase the chances of a fresh perspective?

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? Your all bang on the money. Alcalu is a classic example of western management arrogance & incompetence personified.

Not only are do they appear to have lost key innovations, have too many staff but they are run by what can only be desribed as muppets.

How you merge to companies with that much history, tech and talent and then balls it up like they have is beyond me! You have to work hard to do it!

The platforms are still competent but they are not distinctive enough & their cost base is prohibitively high.

All I can say is good luck to all working there.
