Bill Watkins is my new hero

This entry was posted by on Friday, 1 December, 2006 at

Bill Watkins (CEO of Seagate) just became my new hero. I just read the Fortune interview with him over at CNNMoney.com and some of his comments are already classics to live by:

You never ask board members what they think. You tell them what you’re going to do.

CEOs who whine about Sarbanes Oxley don’t belong in their jobs. Come on guys, get over it.

and the best one of them all:

Let’s face it, we’re not changing the world. We’re building a product that helps people buy more crap – and watch porn.

I agree especially with the Sarbanes Oxley quote, as it affects my daily work. People who complain about it have missed the big picture. I might come back to this issue in a separate post, because there is a lot of stuff to be said about it!
