Career Planning for CEOs

December 9, 2010 | By | Add a Comment

Sometimes you have to find the funny in everyday events.

Earlier this week Micheal Kindler, CEO of pharmacueitical giant Pfizer resigned.

A less know fact is that Kindler used to be a senior executive at McDonald’s Corp. I found his career planning creative.

Start with a company that produces food that raises people’s cholesterol then switch to running the company that has the number one drug (Lipitor) to reduce it.

If this really is his plan I think his next stop will be running a chain of hospitals and then finishing his career in the funeral home business.

This could be a template the tobacco company executives might want to look into.
