    A lot of folks leaving. Retiring, terminated, and just bailing.

    From Gm's to Division Managers to some top brass.

    What concerns me is that nothing new or creative is coming from Atlanta. The same old programs.

    If we are losing so many, I would sure like to see someone or something exciting from the boys that are left back east.

    Are gallager and prince to well off and old to give a crap anymore? Are they running these folks off? Who do they have in mind to hire and generate excitement within this company? We need some young, creative and determined minds at napa that are given the freedom to take some damn chances!

    • Who has left besides Mckenna, Donnon and Handschuh?

    • I'm not sure if this is old news or not but I see that AZO has snagged Jesse James of W.C.C. and Monster Garage fame as a spokesperson. This guy sure is popuplar with all the gearheads out there. Any thoughts??

    • Samuelson has officially been named President of APG.

    • Pro: Re: Now that we know the answer to the APG President question, the other key position will be to address the open position at NAPA. I'm sure Larry S will be in on that decision, but I'm speculating it won't happen much before April. As to why GPC/NAPA Hq's doesn't announce these changes directly to the stores...A good question to which I don't know the answer. Pro, as a store owner I can tell you that Larry S will bring you better programs, but will expect you to do something with them. He is a very hardworking disciplined man and expects the same from everyone in the NAPA family. As an investor, be comforted , because there are few in the organization that understand the market as well as Larry S. Expect big things from him because he will do big things.
      RE: Vegas betting, I don't bet and I haven't really follow football since Vince Lombardi died...ok maybe Tom Landry.

    • Bob Susor is the president of NAPA. In the short term it is exactly the leadership needed. Long term someone with Steve's speaking talents and Bob's qualities, calm, highly intelligent, and insightful, is the ticket. I don't believe there is any rush to find someone other than Bob.

    • If you like GPC, then, you may also want to check out CREB !

      Sales & revenues of CREB are growing........

    • Who is CREB? Why would I want to invest in them? Galat and Vet, where did you guys go?

    • Apparently, this fellow is confused.

      But, obviously, so am I. I missed the opportunity to pick this stock up at 2 bits a share! They used to be somewhat of a player in rebuilt alternators/starters etc, but I think they are considered to be in the proverbial dumpster. What says you CQ lifer?

    • Sorry, the excitement on this board makes me sleepy. Did you guys find that missing inventory ? I noticed you changed your recommendation from a Strong Buy to a Buy. That makes me nervous, spill the beans what is it you know, Martha wants an answer.

    • You appear to be correct. I had no idea they were still around. I actually thought they went out of business in the early 90's.
