It is quite rare, in the world of business, to witness conversion of a low-character guy into a high-character guy. Clearly, AP is #$%$ of the earth. HP was correct in dumping him overboard. Too bad EK was snookered by his PR capabilities.
The writing was on the wall a long time ago. Whether speaking in terms of the EK's consumer inkjet folly, the annual issuance of glossy plans which never materialized, or the self-aggrandizing leadership team, the picture was clear. The last straw, I suppose, was when even mighty KKR was unable to reform the place.
Too bad George Eastman's proud legacy was tarnished carnival shill AP.
