Is it time for new leadership at WEG?
« on: May 05, 2021, 01:11:43 PM »
Jim Lawson and his $750,000 salary can't get us racing. Quebec is starting up. Ontario is not. USA racing balls to the wall.

Maybe WEG needs a leader with some political clout. Doesn't seem like Lawson is doing enough, or has any influence.

What happened to that gasbag Horner? He ran his mouth on social media. A huge crybaby too when someone disagreed with him.

Lawson's biggest problem is that you can't play both sides of the fence and because of what has happened in prior years and what has gone on between him and Ford now is why Ontario is not racing. Ford has always said whatever is in the best interest of all will be the priority but belittle me and my government in the media or publicly then you will pay. Lawson IMO is the problem why we are not racing and he might be at the head of WEG now but the real decisions are not made by him and his board their made in the backrooms which is the real power of WEG. Him and his board are just a front.

who are in the backroom you refer to
these people have more power than the board??

who has more power than the ceo and the board??

Jug what have I said before in that there are plenty of ghosts in their closets. The old regime have never given up control of their bank they just put people in place to make it look like they run the show. When someone makes noise that brings attention to them they bounce them, Clay Horner, John Fielding to name a few recent departures.

I doubt they are paying him $750,000 to just be a front man.
If they are, and there is no racing, wouldn't it make sense to have a change?

mwins trust me change is coming. When Lawson started making noise with a history of playing both sides of the fence he is in a unpopular position. It will be the usual company line that he has decided to pursue other opportunities.
