Autodesk in Newsweek

Thursday, April 22nd, 2004 · No Comments

It’s funny to flip through Newsweek and come across a story about your former employer and the CEO who now looks nothing like she did the first time I saw her.

Extreme Makeover: “After 12 years at the helm of Autodesk—the San Rafael, Calif., company that creates the computer-aided design applications that help create ‘everything God doesn’t’—Carol Bartz has spiffed up her company and herself. Autodesk has announced better-than-expected earnings, and for the first time anticipates a billion-dollar-revenue year in 2005. Personally, in what company insiders refer to ‘the Transformation,’ the 55-year-old CEO dramatically slimmed down.”

Of course, I’m still an Autodesk shareholder, so I can’t complain about the “better-than-expected earnings” and the rising stock price (currently at $34).
