Former CEOs Are Seeking Challenging Second Acts
Paul Charron, the retired chief executive of Liz Claiborne, doesn’t want to spend his days playing golf.
He is among those executives who have left the corner office but aren’t ready to totally retire. They want new jobs where they can satisfy their own needs rather than those of investors and directors — and get some relief from the grueling schedules and pressures they faced as CEOs in big companies. Mostly, they want to keep learning by taking on new challenges.
