- Johannes A. Gaertner

“ Like a quarterback for a football team, CEOs get to take all of the credit when things go well and have to take all of the blame when things go badly. Yet legally, they are not held accountable. When a quarterback fumbles, throws a few interceptions, maybe even throws the game, the coach has a responsibility to bench him, so that no more follies will occur. ”
