re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? "Why not an outsider..." as New CEO?

According to Jim Collins author of "Good to Great" most companies that make the transition do so with leadership from the inside not outside.

Not that it can't be done.

All that said, I guess this pre-supposes that AlcaLu is a Good company?

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? Phil: Worked here and there? Check. Financial background? Check. French-born and Paris educated? Check. What am I missing here?

No turnaround experience.

They need a person to clean house and change culture in order to restore customer confidence. That is a different breed. And I really doubt the current board has the balls to pick someone like that.

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? Is there a book called Crappy to Not-quite-as-crappy? That would be more applicable.

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? Hubert is as likely as any other. He is FRENCH, has made the global rounds, and has to be better than Pat F&^king Russo!

My understanding is that many French with "De" prior to the rest of their name are descendants of French Royalty, but I am not certain. Anyone else know? I am too lazy to Google it.

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? "de" in this case generally means "of" - this can be "Son of" or "of <geographical reference="">". "Son of" can also be found in the use of "fitz" or "fils". "De" is general used in the geographical context.

It may be that a large number of families to follow this convention are descendents of nobility and those who governed these geographical areas. If this is true, it is highly diluted by now.

Perfect for the job - now all you need to do is start the search for his successor who is able to start in 2 years from now.


ps - google is a wonderful thing</geographical>

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? A Frenchman running AlcaLU's how socialistic is that. If AlcaLu is to turn around then get someone with a 'fighting spirit' to change the company and make it compete.

A Frenchman come on get real !

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? Dear Bollocks

re: AlcaLu's Next CEO? While the French may not have a reputation for the best "out of the box" thinking, or as dynamic change artists, the American that currently holds the spot at AlcaLu hasn't exactly draped herself in glory in that regard. In fact, I would think that just about anyone else would be better than what is there now.
