For beginners, the much damaged imaged of the brand today in Latin America and the Caribbean to what it was in the days prior to the arrival of Wes Lucas and the upheaval he created with an infusion of snake oil slogans (GOOD TO GREAT, SPEED AND EXECUTION, BLA BLA) and his cronies that were all industry outsiders from very distant industries. The few industry people that Lucas brought in had been people that had been sacked by Flint Ink and Wes Lucas never really asked why they were not wanted at Flint. And Jim Cunningham, recently fired in a hurry and without any hesitation, was in this group that Lucas brought in with his buddy Greg Lawson and other ex-Flint crony Fernando Tavara.

The Ghosts of Lucas are still roaming around in this company.

The very guilty and disappeared act of Henri Dyner who screwed all of the people that helped him become a millionaire and brought in Wes Lucas, recommended Lucas without reservation and refused to send the alarm call to parent Dainippon Ink and Chemicals that the company was on a 10 alarm fire and coming apart completely. It was his duty. And he just stood by and watch the insanes take charge of the Asylum as Wes Lucas, irresponsible and unqualified for the job, brought in a bunch of people he cliqued with but totally unqualified as Sun Chemical became a company of intrigue and cliques and clans ganging up and humiliating all of the people who we thought were dear or close to Dyner.

But Dyner disappeared in an act of major betrayal. We see all the comments about Latin America and the bunch of guys that took over that Latin American unit which we saw was in relatively good order before all this went down. Perhaps that business unit and other units needed some adjustments but it seems that they instead brought in a pack of wolves who knew nothing of how to do things properly and these wolves just loved to use power destructively and take hunks of red bloody meat and hemorrhage all of the morale out of the organization. SUCH A SHAME and all of that as Dyner hid under the bed, under the mattress, as his people that he cohorted with for all those years were trampled. SUCH A SHAME!

Wes Lucas filed a suit against Quebecor for $23 million apparently because they did not pay him a bonus and he was fired unceremoniously, allegedly. According to newspaper report records, the price of the one Quebeor share dropped from $17 to well under $2 from the time that he was hired to the time he had to leave Quebecor.

People at the top at Sun Chemical are the same people Lucas left behind after he was asked to resign. Somehow the Japanese asked him to leave but left all of the people that were part of his DNA. The 2 CEO's that followed Lucas were people that came in with him. A guy that is familiar with the situation say that at Sun the ghost and DNA of Wes Lucas is still very much running up and down the corridors of Sun Chemical.

The upper management at Sun in Carlstadt was totally incompetent. Their confusion trickled down the chain to the workers. Poor morale and lack of motivation resulted. Only those with connections survive.

John Rooney, now deceased, was a horror as VP.

The majority of this thread contains comments about Wes Lucas.

John Rooney was a good man, was at Sun long before Wes and crowd, and does not deserve to be lumped in with them.

As far as connections, connections to whom? Certainly not the old Sun Chemical people.
