Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AT&T and General Motors – Ed Whitacre – on turning around not one, but two iconic American businesses. Called out of retirement by the Obama Administration’s “Car Czar”, Ed Whitacre navigated GM out of the bankruptcy ditch and rapidly returned GM to profitability and changed the culture of an organization on its deathbed. Prior to GM, Ed Whitacre led the smallest “Baby Bell” and turned it into the biggest, then acquiring AT&T. As CEO of AT&T, he got the exclusive distribution rights to the then revolutionary iPhone.
