I don’t know about you, but I want to be a Circuit City Executive for Christmas!
- Circuit City President Philip Schoonover responded to 3rd quarter losses of $207.3 million by unveiling a retention program that will reward each top executive with $1 million. This is the same management team that axed 3,400 experienced salespeople leading to 2nd quarter losses of $62.8 million. Circuit City has already lost three (3) top executives this year, and Schoonover warns that the future earnings will be imperiled unless his management team remains intact.
Nothing says leadership like giving the captain and the crew of the Titanic a retention bonus.
