ExecutiveBiz recently published its “CEO Reading Summer Reading List.” Vangent’s president and CEO, Mac Curtis, shared with ExecutiveBiz the books he is reading this summer:
“His Excellency: George Washington by Joseph Ellis. The Pulitzer-Prize winning author who wrote Founding Brothers and American Sphinx, offers a look at the man behind the myth.
Fool’s Gold by Gillian Tett. “It’s an exposé on a small group of bankers at J.P. Morgan who concocted the credit derivatives scheme, beginning in the late 1990s, that became a critical tie between financial products and the housing boom and the creation of CDOs (collateralized debt obligations) that drove the recent bust to recession,” says Curtis.”
