Here's a few tidbits:
- After working his way through Stanford delivering beer, he boxed his way through the Harvard Law School:
- He eats PBJ's for lunch:
- This is what happened during negotiantions with Bank of America:
'You're in pain and you have to decide: Does it hurt more to come in or stay out?'"
- The next month this happened with GM:
'You're our third-biggest deal of the day,' Mr. Lambright told GM's chief financial officer, according to three people familiar with the call. 'So if you don't want to do this now, we have plenty else to do. Call us later.'
GM agreed to the government's offer, and received its cash before the New Year.
The good news is that New Treasury Secretary Geithner was smart enough to keep our hero in this job. Yay for the bald guy!
