Ally Greer‘s insight:

This is an incredible piece of reporting by Nicholas Carlson. It tells the story of Tim Armstrong, the current CEO of AOL, and how he went from recovering a bankrupt strawberry field in college to being a top salesman at Google to starting his own company and then joining AOL Time Warner as CEO (which is where the story just begins).

 

In a few short years, he spun off from Time Warner with AOL, bought The Huffington Post for over 300 billion dollars, fought patent wars and an epic proxy war, survived a potential shareholder takeover, and worked endless hours to defend his own company as a part of AOL’s investments.

 

I love reading about executives and their stories and am fascinated by the successes and failures that have led them to where they are today – and you should be too.

 

A super long read, but beyond worth the time.
