Thanks for sharing!
For all the criticism Jack got, he took a company bleeding money and for a short time made it profitable again.

And that was his goal.  Sadly, it turned out to be a short-term solution that could not stop the downward spiral the company had been in.

Love these videos, Jack clearly tried his best but it was too little too late i guess.

He did have short-term success with the financials but the writing was on the wall.
