How to Keep Rising Stars from Straying
Joe Galli, Jr. was hard to keep at Black & Decker? Well, here’s a busy guy indeed:
since 01/08/2001: CEO, Newell Rubbermaid
07/25/2000 – 01/08/2001: CEO, Verticalnet (a CEO in motion taking a vertical leap stayed only 5 months at the best job in the country.)
06/25/1999 – 07/25/2000: President and COO, Amazon.com (stay 13 months, get a $2.75MM cash signing bonus)
06/24/1999 – 06/25/1999: President and Chief Executive, PepsiCo Frito-Lay North America
1980 – 04/1999 : climbed up to President, Black & Decker’s Worldwide Power Tools and Accessories
01/17/01 update: Joseph Galli explains himself, but you’re warned not to do it at home.
03/07/01 update: according to VerticalNet cofounder and now CEO, Galli just came and went.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
