I wanted to correct some misleading information about Mr. Roderick. He was only a GE executive for a very short period of time running our New Plants business where he did absolutely nothing which is why he followed the money to Westinghouse and then sold himself to the Japanese again going to run the Toshiba Power business. And we know where he is today? I will remain focused on this thread as I don't normally post to these forums but I think the record needs to correct and the information needs to be factual.

He was outstanding at selling himself around the globe while being absolutely clueless how to run a business let alone even knew what we were doing in the trenches which is serving our customer base with exceptional service & dedication.

Danny took over Westinghouse after the contracts (Firm Fixed Price) Westinghouse leadership sold to both Southern & SCANA. So I would not directly hand Danny the full brunt of the current troubled construction programs and failed business climate. Who in their right frame of mind would ever bid a FFP on a multi-billion dollar program is criminal & negligent in Business 101 fundamentals.

What the industry in the USA needs to do is perform a Root Cause Analysis of these failed projects and get the government involved in helping steer the industry forward and not bury it 6 feet under.

Lets keep the focus on these threads professional and informational. Maybe they will be read by someone who really understands the current plight the entire nuclear business climate we are in.

Regards,

A concerned nuclear worker.
