An Update of Ken Chenault Posts is running some video segments of Geoff Colvin interviewing Ken Chenault. Chenault is the CEO of American Express. I’ve written in the past that I was impressed with what the board came up with for a compensation package for their CEO. It pays handsomely, but only after their shareholders were rewarded for owning AmEx stock (did the company perform well and did it perform well compared to the market?). Here are several links to the videos and posts of mine.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
