Re: How is Rutledge a Disaster?

How much you want to guess that Tom Rutledge is behind this "fluffing"? LOL

Mr. Tom "Chopper" Rutledge has only been on the job for about a year now. So actually that profitable quarter is mostly the work of PREVIOUS CEO Mr. Mike Lovett.

With all the hard nosed, take or leave it nonsense from this brass tack and his executive manglement team it looks to me like things can only get worse at Charter. Tom is trying to make an "Apple" out of Charter and that just ain't possible, they have neither the product or cache, of the fruit company, nor the legions of Apple zombies that have loads of daddy's money to spend on those chinese made pieces of iCrap. The take it or leave it approach that Tom is trying to impose on his customers is GOING to backfire.

Just look at what happened to Ron Johnson, the Apple Genius that was hired by JCP to make them the "apple" of middle segment department stores, of course he stopped any discounts, and raised prices quite high...Well he got a lot of egg on his face because surprise surprise CEO Johnson is doing a turn about and reinstating discounts and competitive prices now that the ridiculous foray into mindless greed has passed and sanity has once again hit home.Sure they won't make stupid profit that apple does but they will make a profit.

The thought of paying for Mr. Rutledge's daily chopper ride between his home and office around NYC is sickening and I will not be contributing to it as a customer.

You see the economy on Wall Street is NOT the economy on
main street.

Unless you were a Cablevision customer before 2012 you didn't contribute to it.

Rutledge never helicopter'd around NYC for Charter, since their HQ was in Missouri and just recently moved to Connecticut. He did it when he was CEO of Cablevision, since he lives in Connecticut and their HQ was in NYC before leaving in early 2012.
