Carly Fiorina: America’s Iron LadyCarly Fiorina
By Isaac Kight (original source The Times of Israel)
“An incredible woman has launched her campaign for the US Presidency. A friend of Israel and a foreign policy hawk, Carly shows promise.
If you are unfamiliar with Carly Fiorina’s background consider watching this video which explains why Carly Fiorina is so beloved by her supporters.
Carly fought her way up the corporate food chain in the tech industry. An innovator at AT&T’s male-dominated network division, she excelled as a tech executive. When AT&T spun off that division as Lucent Technologies, she led what was then the largest IPO in history. Silicon Valley’s giant, Hewlett-Packard (HP), recruited Carly to run the company. Carly Fiorina was the first female CEO of a Fortune 20 company. Over six years as CEO, she modernized the company and streamlined its processes, merged with Compaq, and opened several new markets for HP. She worked to keep the company afloat through the difficult Dot Bomb years. By the end of her tenure, HP had regained its position as a market leader. Unfortunately, leadership makes enemies, HP’s listless and incoherent Board of Directors would ultimately dismiss her, a decision its membership would come to regret. Carly focused on charitable causes for some years thereafter, including the effort to alleviate poverty in the developing world. She ran for Senate as a Republican in the hopelessly Democrat state of California in 2010.”
