Samuel J. ("Big Sam") Palmisano is SMARTer than the Average Sam !
Big Sam (IBM Chair/Prez/CEO) has engineered a win-win proposition for himself.
If IBM wins, Big Sam wins.
If IBM loses, Big Sam wins.
In the last 18 months, Big Sam has socked away over $92,000,000 Uncle Sam's in stock sales and options. Big Sam is still sitting pretty with over 311,000 outstanding IBM stock shares. That doesn't include stock shares held by family members. Also, Big Sam has quite a few Phantom stock shares. Isn't that spooky ???
And Big Sam is not alone. His top lieutenants have done likewise.
The Really-SMART PLANET starts with Big Sam & the top execs at IBM !
Is IBM the next Enron ?
Is Samuel J. ("Big Sam") Palmisano the next Bernie Madoff ?
