Of course the big news in the industry is that EMC has announced its intention to acquire Captiva for $275 million cash. Internestingly, a day following that announcement, Joe Tucci, EMC’s president and CEO was appointed Chairman of EMC’s board. I had understood that under SOX, the sort of single-person triumvirate was frowned upon. Not that EMC has traditionally cared what anybody has thought…

But here’s the thing – even though Reynolds got cash and would seem to have every reason to step out – wouldn’t he be the perfect guy to help turn EMC around. Look what he did at Captiva. We’re talking less than a dollar per share just a few years ago – now he sells it for 22.25 per share. Great work. Reynolds made Captiva into a money making machine. Could he do the same thing at EMC? It’s obviously a much larger business… Anyway, I’m all in favor of it – after all, we did award him our DIR Man of the Year back at AIIM.

Carry on,

RG
