Was it Aesop who once said, "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." It seems that today was a day of giving kindness at CareFusion. Jim "Crazy Horse" Leitl was in a very giving mood today. By the way Jim, don't ever stop abruptly especially if your former employees have relatives in the NYC police department. Jimmy boy it seems pulled the plug on 25 direct sales reps today, that served the company's Interventional Specialties Division. As usual, Jim delivered everyone's termination with panache. It seems Jim, a humanitarian at heart, terminated all 25 individual in a five minute phone call. At the end of it all Jimmy told everyone to "have a good day.
Two years ago, CareFusion, or should we now call them Idon'tCareFusion (IDCF), launched a "me-too" product line under Andreas "listen to me now or hear me later" Lex to challenge Medtronic/Kyphoplasty. It didn't take long before the then National Sales Directly abruptly quit, as a result of IDCF's incompetent leadership team. Did TSB actually use the word "leadership?" As TSB always says, "cheap is expensive," and by not increasing the comp plan, IDCF got what they paid for. Lex was bumped upstairs and Crazy Horse was promoted. So with that said, another promising opportunity goes kaput. Our readers can take comfort that the Glo-bus is now primed to take over the number two spot competing as they do by allegedly borrowing Dr. Mitchell's technology.
So as TSB kicks up one's heels staring out on the evening sky, the faint voice of the Boss serenading can be heard,
"So listen up my Jimmy boy, be ready when they come, for they'll be returning as the rising sun
Now get yourself a song to sing, and sing it 'til you're done, sing it hard and sing it well
As the robber baron you'll be sent to hell, you greedy thief you came around, and ate the flesh of
everything you found, whose crimes have gone unpunished for now, you walk the streets as a free man now, and brought death to the 25 or so in their home town."
Versace never had style compared to IDCF. Remember what TSB says Jimmy Boy, pay back is a bitch!
