Though a young CEO (no more than 50), he looked out of place. He brought home the bacon but he was the perpetual outsider.
He wore shorts and he was in a pair of Nikes, but it wasn't the clothes that set him apart, it was the way he wore them. Part of me felt bad as he squirmed in his cargo shorts constantly tugging at the hems.
