EF Hutton Speaks People Listen
I just finished 'The Fall of the House of Hutton'. I remember as a kid te commercials "When EF Hutton Speaks, People Listen". Then, the management team ran the place into the ground. Interesting for the history on this one. I find companies to be amazing things. Much more fragile than people think. And much less competent than anyone wants to believe.
As a funny sideline...Robert Rittereiser, the CEO of Hutton when it failed, moved on to run a financial services firm named Gruntal...he was there for 6 years before he ran that palce into the ground. Article
