Quick post: short interview with Kapser Horsted, CEO at Henkel, the german consumer and industrial products company. While you can just click on the link and enjoy, we’ve highlighted two excerpts inside. He’s frank and most of his quotes are quite direct and of the “no-hubris” type.

One:

Kasper: “I never read cc e-mails.” What do you mean by that? “When I see on an e-mail “cc Kasper,” I delete it. I don’t read it.” Why? “Because it’s a waste of time. If they want to write to me, they can write to me. People often copy me to cover their back.”

Two:

How do you hire? (…) I always ask the question, what would you do if you won 10 million bucks?”
