No, he is talking about Sal, who has singlehandedly kept Gibson Acoustic afloat for the last few years!

Give it a couple months and he’ll sell it to buy an lg2 american eagle

Don’t think he’s ever had one of those

Gibson has been advertising for a CEO. I believe Henry stepping aside for a new CEO is part of the bankruptcy restructuring agreement. He will still be an owner.

"As part of that reform plan, Juszkiewicz, who has headed up Gibson since the Eighties, left the company, leaving them on the lookout for a new leader."

 

This part doesn't sound very encouraging....

 

Gibson’s new CEO will ideally have a background in major consumer products, digital engagement and e-commerce, as well as “experience in acquiring and integrating complementary businesses.” Music industry experience is preferred, but not required.

Will they hire someone who hasn't the foggiest idea?

Pure cut and dried "business" ain't gonna work here..these are professional musical instruments we are talking about here.

The raid that niked all that wood really did them in man.When your own gov. nearly brings down without thought its own

historic legacy you gotta wonder in who's interest's they are working for.

Only way to find out is to apply for the job...then set 'em straight on these matters!

Yep. A well-planned, strategic strike. Eliminate all of a companies key raw material, which is extremely difficult to replace - sort of like "Attempted Murder".

Henry did all to recover from that. but, of course, they were already too heavily in debt.
