Can The CEO Walk Away? Carlos Hidalgo Did Just That
Carlos Hidalgo was guest number 122 on “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do” in Novermber 2015, At that time he was the founder and CEO of ANNUITAS and was leading the 10 year old company through amazing growth. Then a year later he decided he had to make some hard choices, and decided to walk away from the company to choose a different life for himself and his family.
Can a CEO of a successful company really walk away? Carlos did just that. He told his board in October, and 4 months later told the world. What surprised him the most was how many other CEOs, Founders, and C-Level Executives reached out to him and said “Tell me more about how you did that”.
