Case 6: Choice of an Executive Assistant

  • Tom Whetstone


Jack Brown, an active member of his local church, genuinely desired to serve as a Christian businessperson. At the age of 42, he was hired as the CEO of ZYX Corporation. The previous CEO’s executive assistant, Miss Emma Cummings, who had served 30 years as personal secretary/executive assistant to the last six CEOs, decided that it was a good time for her to retire. This would allow Mr. Brown the opportunity to select her successor as he began his tenure.
