A non-UPSers to head the company? A dollar and cents man.? Watch out! I'll go out on a limb and say that the next five years will be the worst in history. When the CFO becomes the CEO, the breaks on spending are given new pads, Stragtegic planning, such as it was, goes down the tubes. Mike is placed on the BOD for no good reason. And Kurt, who has the discipline and intellect to run the company, is put in the back seat. For union members, this is not good. What experience can he bring to the table in dealing with the UBT? For management, this is not good. Try to get money to fund your next project. Michael Eisner would have been a better choice.
