When I saw the awkward attempts to present Tom Wilson as a leader (quarterly communication meetings), while Liddy was still in charge, it was painful to watch. You wondered how anyone could envision Wilson to be the head of the corporation. You are correct, TW has done little to lead the company, and he doesn't have a clue.
The latest edition of Crain's Chicago Business rate the best and worst board of directors in Chicago and Allstate was rated one of the worst, therein lies the problem. Last year the stockholders voted against some of the directors by as much as 46% and about 34% against Wilson
