I won't make the "Arbuckle Award Dinner 2007" at my alma mater—the Stanford Business School. But I'm delighted to see that the award goes to one of our grads who got an MBA and a PhD from the biz school—just like me. It's Henry McKinnell, who just retired as Pfizer chairman. He lost $125 billion in market cap—and, like Mr Nardelli, got a "takeaway" reward of $200 million or so for that accomplishment. Now that is a record worthy of an award, I'd say.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
