Just contemplating an idea that occurred: Hud hired the darlings of development '...to find...opportunities', quoting from the Nashville Business Journal,
"The $340 million Nashville company has brought in Gregory Schonert and Austin Craun to find development opportunities.
CEO Connery's new executives have backgrounds in REIT financing and health care analysis. He'll need them both because, for every potential deal, the company has to look at a dozen others. "You've got to turn over a lot of stones," Connery says."
So, in nearly two years, they've been paid to look for opportunities...and just haven't quite managed it.
They fired Anna Jean, possibly because of the non-compliance fines. Several others because they made Hud look bad. One because he was causing internal strife (disagreeing with Hud.)
So, what about not producing what they were hired for? It's not like he is their mentor, or friends for 20 years....
Yep, the boys better watch their backs--after all, Hud certainly knows what can crawl out from under rocks, or stones, that is....
