Most people run away from a fire. Eric Pillmore ran toward one, joining Tyco International just after larceny charges were filed against the CEO and CFO in 2002. As the senior vice president of corporate governance, Eric assisted with the turnaround of the company, including discovering the root causes that led to fraud and larceny, gaining the trust of employees and public investors during the turnaround, and overhauling the corporate governance organization so that such a situation would never happen again.
“Make sure you listen to the people who care most about your company—the people who are betting their life savings on it and other investors’ money on it.”
