On an amusing note, when we devised our moniker some years ago, there were only about 45 DuPont Vice Presidents. That's from where the number "45" came.
Of course, now Ms. Cull-Men drives a herd of circa 100 DuPont Presidents and DuPont Vice Presidents and General Managers and Equivalents to Vice President. As fast as the DuPont Company has shrunk over a decade-plus, its grossly overpaid senior executive ranks have swelled.
[Indeed and in fact, the huge, disproportionate overhead has helped impede the competitiveness of DuPont Sub-Performance Coatings, now "reportedly" on the block.]
