I wouldn't be surprised if he failed the company on purpose. He has been a terrible leader and has no vision.

I think a public beheading should be the "Reward" for a CEO doing a very poor job.
I dont think Heins did a bad job, I think his direction was great, although about a year/year and a half too late.

This is the travesty of the whole corporate structure in North America. Why oh Why do Governments allow boards (of publicly traded companies) to make these kind of deals with CEO's and never with their working rank and file employees? It would be so nice to hear a Board make a contract with a Ceo that stipulates
"if you run the company into the ground the lowly workers get 1 years worth of salary and Benefits and you get nothing!!!"
That would actually make CEO's think twice before accepting any job.
When will we the American people stand up and demand of the Government that in order for a company to list it's self on the exchanges and finance Billions of dollars from pension funds and stocks that their boards and CEO's get nothing if the company goes bankrupt?
But, instead all the hard working dads and moms get the golden parachutes ( not millions of dollars but at least a guarantee of 1 years worth of salary to help them till they find their next Job) is that not fair?
What about you guys on PA don't you think that would be fair? No CEO should not get reward for bankrupting a company
