I had a similar experience in the mid 80s. I was the CFO of a network oriented (Novell) microcomputer distributor with a product line that was continually being turned over because of technological advances. The environment was one a barely controlled chaos and the company needed a leader capable of turning on a dime. The CEO, who was a part time presence, recruited a friend for the position of President who had had a high level position with a semi-conductor distributor. A completely different world. The President never adapted to the pace and took so long to make decisions that it seriously hurt the company. His biggest mistake was trying to take a sales staff that was barely civilized and turn them into the button-down drones that he was used to managing. The owner eventually terminated both the President and the CEO.
