Russo's Weakness

9:15 AM -- Today is Day One -- or Jour Un -- for Pat Russo as CEO of what is now the telecom sector's biggest vendor, Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU). (See Alcatel, Lucent Merge and Farewell, Lucent.)

But while many have remarked on Russo's position of power, Light Reading has discovered a key weakness that could be exploited by the new vendor's upper and middle management.

According to well placed sources, Russo has a pronounced and particular penchant for Peanut M&Ms. "She absolutely loves them," says our source.

So, all you Alcatel-Lucenters (we'll have to come up with a better name than that...), now you know what you should be packing when you get called to the CEO's office in Paris.

That's if, of course, you can get them in the French capital...

re: Russo's Weakness OK, so now we (reckon we) know Pat Russo's candy hot spot, what about other CEOs?

Any big cheeses out there with a passion for Hershey Bars?
Or a Curly Wurly?

Which CTO might have a hoard of snickers in his desk drawers?

We need to know...
