    there we go again, one plot after the previous on.. How on earth can you become an CFO of such a big company being 34 years old. If you have an M-Degree and your army time you are already 25 years old with no experience whatsoever...

      What army time. 20 years ago he was 14.

      Poor statement - Craig Barnes was younger than 34 when he took over successfully before emigrating
