"Old CFO was scheduled to leave\retire on 3/1/10. New CFo leaves a week earlier than that retirement date. Has nothing to do with financials at all in my mind. Scared CFO, probably over her head, could not step up in time and needed more hand holding."
Well, the 'dumb management' paid her around $1.15M for not even being a real CFO and bailing after 6 months, and they were so pleased with her they gave her another 51,000 stock grants with an additional guarantee of $20/share cash bonus for each vested share. That was after 6 months, not including whatever grants and options given out when she started. So, dumb CFO, dumb management, or both?
