Thread regarding Staples Inc. layoffs

Why is the CTO talking for the company?

"Last winter, when other retailers were hawking holiday deals on the latest gadgets and electronics, Staples cut back on Christmas promotions. It also closed its doors on Thanksgiving Day. It just wasn't worth it to play that game, Staples Chief Technology Officer Faisal Masud explained in a recent interview. Sales dipped as a result, but profits rose, he said."

From a Bloomberg article today. Why is Shira letting Masud talk? He's part of the reason Staples is in this mess.

"Why is the CTO talking for the company?"

Because that's all he does, talk. Look at his career, nothing. You think if he did 1/10 of what he's said he's done Amazon would have let him go? Same with his FoFs.

Belittling others is a strong suit though. So if you need a first class spokes person who talks a good game, chastises his opponents, and bullies people in order to fulfill their low sense of self-esteem, hey he's your guy.

CTO isn't technical, so he cannot speak on technology, leaving him to pontificate on business maneuvers. He has always been a top line growth guy because : reasons. Profit is SOOOO east coast. FM is west coast, don't you get how cool it is to lose money, kill morale, inflate your ego, and crater a business? That's how they do it in the valley yo!

"Names not allowed here, dude."

What names do you have? The article with Masud's name was on the internet. It is public.

From what I heard, this guy was a nobody at Amazon, but talked a good game to Ron Sargent, who hired him. His aspirations go higher than CTO and he has no problem sacrificing underlings to get there
