My family has been involved with General Electric for many years in different parts of the US(Chicago, New York, Texas). We had not heard of Mr. Simonelli until the corporate offices were moved to Chicago last year, when we met with him and some of the others he does not come across as very knowledgeable, he is a young man out to impress but didn't have the presentation or mind skills to follow the BS.
Someone in GE's higherarchie is using this kid to do their dirty work.
When you look at past leadership with General Electric the solid leadership were not worried about tending their wine vinyards in Italy or boasting of what vehicles they drove. This kid shouldn't be at the helm of a major corporation, he should be back on his parents farm in Italy picking grapes.

I was on the Erie County United Way board with Simonelli and we used to laugh when he was at events, he is a pompuos, arrogant wind bag.
Last fall there was an event and the powers that be invited "Lorenzo The Great" as we refer to him to speak at for a fund raiser and the kid shows up late and thought it was neat to "keep the crowd waiting".
Simonelli watches too many movies, believe me, he does not have a clue on reality.
After the event was finished that day a "leader" at the Manufacturers and Business center told a group of us he would not let Lorenzo run a race let alone a large corporation, I agree.

I was in management with GE for 25 years, I retired two years ago, I loved the place and made a good living.
In my time I worked under a number of solid people as leaders, Lorenzo Simonelli was not one of them, he had a tough time with the truth, telling it and accepting it!

He made them a 1 Billion dollar profit last year. Seems like he knows what he is doing.

When they first brought Simonelli to Erie, my gut reaction was "This is the hatchet man." I guess time did tell all.

It was very nice that Lorenzo could fly in and fly out of Erie last night from Chicago on the GE Learjet to attend the annual Chamber dinner.
I wonder how much that cost the company?
Just how much has our boy Lorenzo made in stock options alone? Has Lorenzo ever taken any concessions in his pay or benefits when "times were tight"?
Could you check into that for us "Drive By".
