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?
