    Who would make a good CEO for Sprint?

    Let's face it, by almost any measure Sprint has had two of the worst CEO's in a row. Who do you think would be a good CEO that could fix Sprint?

    Two? I think they've had more than that in a row. Did you forget Gary Forsee?

    In what way is the current CEO failing? And if that were true can you explain why the guy that owns 75% of Sprint stock isn't acting on it?

    Maybe wait till this quarters results. Penetration Rates hit 100p in the U.S. If you were paying him 400k a year, he's doing fine. For his pay he should be netting 500k postpaid and 500k prepaid phone customers minimum per quarter. Sprint is cutting the margins down to nothing and attracting Groupon Style bargain basement shoppers. The take rates are the highest on the greatest value plans (ie $20 for unlimited). If your not netting 500k with this, and you factor in most of these "value" shoppers leave with any rate increase, you are setting yourself up for a problem down the road. The restructure and right sizing of this business is going to scare the crap out of current employees and the ones with options will leave. For Gods Sake, hire Braxton from TMO to be your CEO. He's the brains over there. He understands Prepaid (Sprint's prepaid team is out to lunch). He takes the same methodology and applied it to postpaid. He is underpaid.

    Bring Hesse back. At least he appreciated the existing customers. With SoftBanks bank account, Hesse would have been great. New guy only wants new customers and runs off existing customers. I know I couldn't pass up Tmo's $200 per line offer. Tired of feeling like a 2nd class citizen at Sprint.

    I actually think Marcelo is doing a great job right now. Hesse was good but he wasn't proactive enough in this ever changing market.

    The reason CEO's aren't just fired after a couple of quarters of losses is simple economics. No "qualified" person would take over a sinking ship unless they were guaranteed of large bags of cash regardless of the final outcome. This is where it gets complicated. Sure Marcelo can put a lot of spin and PR on quarter after quarter of losses, but just like Hesse, the board will cut their losses, well the investors' losses. At some point it's cheaper to pay the golden parachute and roil investors for a few days than to drag out losses every quarter. The way it's going I'm sure the same thing will happen: Marcelo will bleed them dry and ride off into the sunset On his golden parachute.

    The thing that puzzles me is Softbank's strategy, or lack there of. For all the strategic bets they've taken this one has been one large clusterphuck. Don't get me wrong it's fixable but the whole approach of work with what you have just isn't cutting it: you need money to make money (invest money to make money).
