Jack Welch on Legends of Success


Jack Welch, Legendary CEO of General Electric, and his wife Suzy welcome John Resnick to their home in Boston to discuss Jack’s appearance on Legends Of Success.

It is with great sadness that we say a final farewell to our friend and mentor, Jack Welch. Jack was an enormous influence on millions of people and certainly a huge impact on those of us fortunate enough to have known him. There was only one Jack Welch and he will be missed.

Bernie Marcus, Co-Founder
The Home Depot

Listen to John’s interview with Bernie Marcus, Founder of The Home Depot

In April of 1978 at the age of 49, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank were abruptly and unfairly fired from their executive positions at home improvement center, Handy Dan’s for “outperforming” a very insecure boss.

Nearly broke and unsure of his next move, Bernie received a surprise call from friend, Ken Langone (see Forbes 400) who encouraged him to pursue a dream Marcus had of building “warehouse size home improvement stores coast to coast that would revolutionize the industry”. Langone hit the streets to help raise seed capital from personal investors, and one year later on June 22, 1979 the first Home Depot store was open for business.
