All things nice

No primary category set

Forbes has some nice coverage of eBay’s nice CEO, Meg Whitman:

Nice is the word usually applied to Whitman personally, and nice she has been to shareholders. … “I love who we are as a company and what we stand for,” says Whitman. “It’s fun to have built such a successful company and done it with a nice character, in a way most people would be proud of.”

As well as decisively quashing any ‘she’s leaving’ rumours (“The legacy-building period is not over yet.”), they add an astonishing list of possible future aquisitions for eBay, including Yahoo, Amazon and Expedia. Nice companies, if she can get ’em.

  1. Sue, there is no denying that Meg is a very nice person and in my mind a very good CEO. I’ve had the pleasure of dining with her and we talk about personal things for most of the meal. The problem with the company is the Worldwide Marketplace business that is the responsibility of John Donahoe.

    As Chris mentioned in one of his posts, if John Donahoe is the heir apparent, there will be a rocky road ahead. I believe Mr. Donahoe has some good ideas I just feel the execution has been very poor.
