Haven’t you heard? The CEO of Harley-Davidson, Keith Wandell has decided to take time off from the company in order to pursue his dream of playing keyboard in a band named “Wizard.”
Just kidding—unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you probably already know what Keith is up to this week. He’s coming off a “Booyah” financial quarter where by every financial measure the company has generated improvements.
I ran across this video where Mr. Wandell does an interview with The Street reporter Debra Borchardt. He’s in the press “hot seat” and provided some insights into H-D’s relative success in the 1H 2011. The Street — is a leading provider of financial news, commentary, analysis, ratings, and business and investment content, made available through online publications, content syndication and audio and video programming.
Side Bar: Mr. Wandell has come a long way from the initial days of not owning or riding a motorcycle to where today he owns three! He rides a Street Glide CVO 2011; Road King Classic; and Dyna Wide Glide. That H-D employee discount must be working out for him.
The bottom line of the interview is Harley-Davidson is rockin’ with Mr. Wandell!
