The ill winds of greed have filled the sails. GAC is no longer a meritocracy. I watched them remove some excellent people.
I don’t think it’s him at all. Quite frankly, I think once he retires from being the president he could stay on another 20 years just roaming the facilities and motivating and inspiring others. I think it’s the pressures of running a global business and having to make many difficult decisions. In the past, once you got a job at the company you were essentially tenured for your career. Today, margin expectations from the parent company force Gulfstream to make many difficult decisions. Do I question why there isn’t any leadership team shakeup? Absolutely! Do I wonder why many VPs kept their titles and salaries while cutting those underneath. Absolutely! I’m just looking on the outside now, but I think Mark is a fantastic leader. If anything, I would stay away from those all hands meetings where he’s obviously walking a tightrope. In all fairness, he did say there would likely be some reductions in some areas while other areas would grow.
True story- I work at Gulfstream and was telling my now husband to that Mark Burns was president of Gulfstream. He started laughing saying it’s not the same “Mark Burns” he was in classes with at Georgia Southern, right? I said to him, it had to have been. His response, “ That guy was an id–t, there is no way he is running Gulfstream”. I bet my hubby a night out. I won!!!!
