On yesterday’s Your World, guest Joe Grano, Vietnam veteran and CEO of both Premier Alliance and Centurion Holdings, talked about what should happen at the VA. A banner on the lower third of the screen read, “VIETNAM VET AND FMR UBS CEO JOE GRANO: LET NEW SECRETARYY CLEAN HOUSE AT THE VA.”
Near the end of the discussion, Cavuto kissed up by saying Grano had a “good eye for talent,” then asked what he would do.
I’d bring my management team in and start with the following premise, we’re going to be client-centric and solution-based. We know who the client is, the veterans, so what are the solutions that are required here? And you’re either on board or not, if you’re not, get out of the room, I’ll throw you down a flight of stairs. You have to coalesce and keep focus on who the client is.
Cavuto joked, “All right, well, the throw-them-down-the-stairs option is probably the reason why you were not considered.”
Grano replied, “I’m glad I wasn’t.”
Cavuto laughed, then said, “Joe Grano, always calls them like he sees them.”
Even if he was kidding, Grano shouldn’t say he’s going to hurt someone if they don’t comply with his rules.
Watch him "joke" about throwing someone down the stairs below.
