    Eisner's next moves

    CALIFORNIA AND THE WEST
    Eisner Gives Clues to Next Move
    The retired Disney chief has put out feelers to former subordinates about working together, but he hasn't decided on what, sources say.

    By Sallie Hofmeister, Times Staff Writer

    How does a media mogul who has run a world-famous corporation for two decades suddenly transform himself into an entrepreneur?

    If you are Michael Eisner, you turn to people you know and trust — the ones who previously worked for you.

    Re: Eisner's next moves

    Who'd want to be in business with a man who lost sight with some of the most crucial elements that led to the Disney company's success with Walt?

    I wouldn't trust him .. as far as I could throw him.

    Most likely ... at his (older) age ... Well-set into his ways ........ who's to say he won't bring the same "way of thinking" he took the Disney Co. down these last several years??????????

    He should just hit the golf courses .. have lunch with his cronie friends who'll give him the time of the day .. and perhaps volunteer for a non-profit company and use what fewer talents he hasn't lost!

    Re: Eisner's next moves

    I only wonder at what he is looking to do with his shares of Disney stock.

    If Disney stock drops because of Iger's moves, what will Eisner's moves be? Was there a non-compete clause in Eisner's final contract with Disney? He's already laid off a lot of Disney talent, could he look to lure them to his new company, or would he be looking for a hostile takeover of Disney, if enough shareholders would agree to it?

    Just wondering.

    Probably quite a few people would want to be in business with him. Say what you want about him from a "Walt" standpoint, the man was highly successful in growing the company. He has experience, he is well educated and there are probably many companies who would benefit from his leadership.
