Will arrested Sr. VP Robert ("Blabber Mouth") Moffat cut a deal by mouthing off about “family secrets” at IBM ??? [That’s less like an Epiphany and more like your worse nightmare.]
After all, Blabber Mouth was IBM CEO Samuel (“Big Sam”) J. Palmisano’s heir apparent, confidant, protégé, pal, chum, buddy. In 20-20 hindsight it may appear that Blabber Mouth was Big Sam’s coach, mentor, counselor.
Big Sam and Blabber Mouth even shared investment “strategies” ! On August 12 & 21, 2008 Big Sam and Blabber Mouth made large parallel IBM stock transactions. [This is during the same time frame that Blabber Mouth was spilling his guts to Danielle Chiesi.]
