Carly Fiorina's Business Record Before HP
“She did a bad job.” That’s what Donald Trump had to say about his fellow GOP contender and “outsider” candidate Carly Fiorina’s business record. Speaking with CBS’s Face The Nation, Trump pointed to Fiorinia’s former position as CEO of the tech giant Hewlett-Packard.
It’s no surprise to hear about yet another Trump attack, but Fiorina’s business record – which Fiorina defends and even touts as experience that makes her suitable for the White House – has come under fire from many.
Fiorina’s record in the private sector was not formed exclusively at HP. In 1997, she served as the president of Lucent Technologies, the former hardware division of AT&T. The next year, Fortune Magazine named her the “Most Powerful Woman in Business.”
But as Arik Hesseldahl of Re/code writes, “when you unpack the particulars of that earlier period, a more complicated and troubling picture emerges.” Hesseldahl speaks with Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd about the picture he discovered.
