ALIS Retrospect Leaders face off
When CEOs of the past, present and future gathered for a Jeopardy-style hotel trivia game on the last day of ALIS, it was only a matter of time before things got a little bit chippy. “They’re old. They don’t need that much help,” Carlson’s Nancy Johnson quipped playfully after insinuating that the buzzers were rigged in favor of the elder statesmen of the bunch. Appropriately dubbed, “Old Guys rule!” (aka retired CEOs) the duo in question comprised FelCor’s Tom Corcoran and Don Landry, formerly of Sunburst Hospitality. They were up by a few hundred points at this point and were on their way to a rather decisive victory over teams “The boss” (aka current CEOs) and “Wannabe CEOs” (aka future CEOs).
