Iíve built a career in business and have quite a bit of experience in corporate governance and executive recruitment, selection, retention and separation. Iíve interacted with hundreds of board members at both private and public companies. For the life of me, I canít understand whatís going on here.
First and foremost, Wayne has caused a massive PR issue for the NRA. Even if all bad decisions were not personally made by him, he oversaw the organization and the buck stops with him. But donít expect someone with the ego he has to step down. He will need to be shown the door. And he should have no further involvement with the NRA.
Secondly, where in the world is the Board? Why havenít they ousted Wayne? Why did they let Cox leave? Why did they let Ollie leave? To protect Wayne? Where are Charles Cotton and Carolyn Meadows in all of this? Although Charles did post some of his musings on his forum, they were the usual ďdonít post anything negative about the NRAĒ, and he offered nothing of substance. He alludes to having more info, but thatís typical of how he handles conversations relating to TX politics as well.
Third, why isnít the NRA acting like the massive organization that they are? In almost all situations like this, other organizations would have brought in a heavy duty public relations firm, would have put Wayne on leave while they investigated his misdoings, and for sure would not have ousted two executives who appear to have done nothing more than call Wayne out. Itís as if the NRA doesnít get how bad their situation is.
Fourth, Iím not so sure this isnít being blown apart on purpose by someone on the inside in an elaborate scheme to take it down. Theyíve not handled anything well through all of this - itís so hard to believe that there may be subterfuge behind it.
Found out today Duane Liptak NRA BOD and President of Magpul also lost a bunch of committee assignments.
Folks this is really bad.
His total annual compensation is around $5 million and he doesn't seem to have to prove any results to get that. He gets away with treating everyone at HQ like personal servants. That's a lot of incentive to stay. The board would have to offer him an incredible package to get him to go quietly.
I'll bet he's already written a tell-all memoir that's guaranteed to be a best seller among pro gun and anti gun people alike. They will probably have to pay him not to publish it.
