A Man Called Cope
ROB Magazine takes an in-depth look at BCE's CEO
TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - BCE Inc. has had a tough few years. Share price had languished, it lost customers to the competition, and it was the target of a massive - and tortuous - leveraged buyout that fell through at the 11th hour. Then George Cope stepped in. He faced an uphill battle in his first 20 months as CEO, defending the classic landline phone company threatened by new technology. He's restructured the company and brought clarity and a razor-sharp business instinct that leaves colleagues and competitors in awe.
Writer Simon Avery reveals answers on how Cope plans to restore BCE and its 50,000 employees to its glory days in the March issue of Report on Business magazine, available Friday, February 26.
