Scroll down a half page or so to see the writeup on Forsee, he is the second rotten CEO mentioned.

Hesse is certainly better than Forsee, and he (Hesse) deserves credit for what he has accomplished at Sprint.

HOWEVER, on that very same webpage for which you posted the link, scrolling down two more CEOs past Hesse you'll see Tim Donahue, former Nextel CEO, who was by all accounts superior to Hesse.

Here's a lengthy bio on Tim Donahue, including the fantastically successful accomplishments he made with Nextel, before selling it to Sprint:

Your above comment might've had more punch had you posted it alongside your other. Now, it's basically an afterthought since your original was posted alone.

Not an aftethought at all, a response to additional info posted by you. Here's the chronology:

1) I shared the link to a current article highlighted in an online telecom-industry newsletter I receive.

2) You posted a response, citing a different article, yet still related in that it was discussing telecom-industry CEOs.

3) My response to your posting was to point out additional information contained within your article, along with an additional supporting link .

So my response to your response was no more "afterthought" than YOUR first response to my original posting was an "afterthought".

The question is...why didn't you reveal Donahue's achievments in your original post? Seems a bit odd to me to post one and not the other.

Just didn't think of it. Came across the original article about Forsee and posted it at face value. It wasn't until your reply post of Hesse as a good CEO that it sparked the recall about Donahue and the high accolades he always received (until he sold Nextel downriver, that is ;-).

Forsee was an idiot. He pandered to low quality customers and destroyed the great work Donahue accomplished. Nextel customers were fiercely loyal until Sprint took over.

Is Hesse a good CEO? Possibly. If he holds onto uncapped data it will attract more and more of the coveted market - data heavy smartphone users. I myself made a switch from AT&T to Sprint a couple weeks ago b/c of that feature.

But Sprints stock is putrid, and while its expected to move up this week, all in all the company is in bad financial shape. Its not Hesse's fault, hes alot like Obama taking over the mess Bush created. Yet he also knew what he was getting into when he took the position. My hope, for all consumers, is that Sprint stays afloat. We'd b...
