I was shocked to hear of Bob Bailey’s retirement today. He’s been PMC’s CEO for so long I expected him to be there forever. With the departures of Kevin and recently Greg it did make me begin to wonder about Bob’s future at PMC. Surely the stress of the past decade was affecting him too.
On my front, I learned a lot from him.
I can still remember him grilling me on customer lists back in the early ’90′s – Where is the list? Who are the decision makers? What’s the priority? What do they want?
Always stressing “fundamentals”, the necessity of everyone “blocking & tackling” and that old-school wasn’t a bad “phrase”. PMC is all about relationships, credibility and delivering on promises.
Thanks Bob. It’s been a great adventure. All the best in your new endeavours.
