New NetJets CEO Hansell is great, says his dad

leave a comment »

Funny Bloomberg article talking about the new NetJets CEO, Jordan Hansell. Hansell is really a complete unknown in the business world. He was recruited out of private law practice  just two years ago to be NetJets’ general counsel.

The article reminds me of something out of a school paper, as the primary source of information about how prepared Hansell is is Hansell’s father. Talk about cutting edge investigative journalism.  I guess Hansell’s grandmother was not available for comment.  Unsurprisingly, Hansell’s father seems to have good things to say about his son.

It’s not at all clear why Hansell is qualified to lead such a company.  He has no operational experience and no experience in the aviation industry.  At least with Sokol, he had a background in managing large, capital intensive businesses.  He may surprise me, but I think they’re going to need to come up with someone to take over who can really show some vision on where the company needs to go.
