If You Get a Moment Would You Please…

Lou Pepper is an American original.  A man of great financial savvy and salty irreverence, he is credited with shaping one of the most successful corporate cultures in America.  Mr. Pepper’s relationship with Washington Mutual began in 1953, when he worked as a lawyer for the Seattle-based bank.  But it wasn’t until almost 30 years later, 1980, that Mr. Pepper was given the task that would change his life and that of Washington Mutual.

Mr. Pepper was assigned to manage Washington Mutual’s shutdown–instead, he turned the company around and launched a period of explosive growth.  When he retired as CEO in the 90’s, the bank’s assets exceeded $7 billion dollars.

His book–a collection of observations on creating successful culture and value systems–entered its 2nd printing in 2006.  Lou’s ideas on people, business, life — funny, and easy-to-read– is packed with sage advice and philosophy.
