Reputation Straight Up

Reputation is all about having advocates to support you in time of crisis. An article in today’s Wall Street Journal on Lehman Brothers CFO, Erin Callan, supports this side benefit of building relationships before you need them. “To squash fears that Lehman could face the same kind of liquidity squeeze as Bear (now being acquired by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.), Ms. Callan has had hundreds of face-to-face meetings and phone calls with investors and trading partners. She aggressively roots out rumors, even while pushing her bosses to disclose more financial information.” Sounds to me like she is out winning the vote every day.
The risk is often worth the reward.
