Well now that Billy Chandler has been named President of Summers-Taylor he will finally be able to do what he has tried and wanted to do since he joined the company and that's bankrupt the company. There will be another 350 to 450 more unemployed people spread out from Elizabethton to Morristown. I hate to hear this because I still have alot of friends some that made S&T the only place they have ever worked, the company should have been turned over to Rab's son who cares about the business his great grandfather started not to Chandler who is famous for bankrupting 3 companies in Georgia.

I couldn't help but wonder why Rab's son was not made President How did Chandler ever get to where he is with the company? I sure hope he doesn't ruin the company, and cause more unemployment in our area.

Is this the person who has the reputation of being a lady's man, or is it another Chandler?

He was caught banging Linda Whitehead by her son in one of the houses she was trying to sell a few years ago. As far as him being a lady's man my guess would be the ladys would have to be awfully hard up.

To be truthful he started ruining the company when he took the VP position. I spent over 10 years watching him take S&T from a thriving workplace to the shitty barely existing shell of a company it is now. It was a great place to work and a very hard place to get a job before he came along, now if you're able to write your name on an application you are hired.

I remember the Linda Whitehead fiasco. She, and Tom, divorced after that. I have heard several people say that Billy's wife is "no prize". I guess Linda thought she could take him away from his wife. I have never laid eyes on him, other than seeing his picture in the Greeneville newspaper. He doesn't look like much of a prize either. Neither is Linda Whitehead, in my opinion. I guess money is the motivator.

I dunno about what his wife looks like but she's the one that has all the money not him and she must think she has a catch to stay with his sorry ass. But in all reality he's a two faced chickenshit prick!

I know the wife when I see her. She is mannish looking, and probably thinks she couldn't get anyone else. I doubt Linda Whitehead was his first "rodeo", and in all likelihood it won't be his last. If I were the wife, and was the one with the money, I would kick his behind back to Atlanta. I heard an employee clobbered him once, for being such a horse's hind end. I cannot believe that Rab Summers would have brought him here to start with. I always thought the Summers family were nice people. I don't think it is in their nature to be ugly. I don't see why they would put up with someone who is so unlike them.

Yeah, he got clobbered back around '90 or so I believe. I guy he fired and then told off whacked him up side the head with his name plaque on his desk I heard. LoL. S/T was built by the original owners as a quality organization. I remember the old timers commenting when B.C. came on board.

You heard exactly right a friend of mine called Beaver beat his ass good and would have probably killed him if the suck ass that wanted Beavers job hadnt stopped him. It was a set up deal so the guy named Bubba could get his job, Chandler wore makeup for many weeks to cover his bruises and carried a gun and encouraged the other superintendants and supervisors to arm themselves in case of retaliation of employees over his actions. I wish it had been me that walked by his office while Beaver was whooping the hell out of him I would have locked the door so the ass whooping couldnt have been stopped.

I worked there for six years and liked it except for Billy. The Summers are a very nice and generous family, but for some reason they have the biggest turd on the face of the earth running their business. I wish Grant had taken over and run Billy out of town. The strangest thing was that Billy hired a Loven to run the concrete division. Bitter enemies for years and then he brings it into his own company. Loven's have no respect for anyone and he treats his employees like crap and expects them to be thankful for the honor of his all knowing presence. He doesn't know a damn thing about concrete and even less about people. He actually wanted me to send a guy home for the week because he had to get home to be there when his son got off the bus because his wife was at the doctor with his daughter and couldn't make it back in time. School got let out unexpectedly, no fault on anyone, and he wanted me to take away a week's pay from the guy. Chandler and Loven are sorry asses, but Summers is probably worse. He let's it go on and doesn't even know that his company and reputation are getting run into the ground.
