AOL CEO Tim Armstrong: "Don't Congratulate Me."


I bumped into AOL CEO Tim Armstrong during an Advertising Week conference in New York this week. I hadn?? seen him since before he was named CEO of struggling online portal AOL. I thought it polite to say ??ongratulations?on the gig.

Armstrong, the former Google sales chief who surprised many by taking the AOL job, looked back at me and said…”Not yet…nothing to congratulate me on yet.”

It’s a healthy attitude you don’t come across much in CEO land. Congratulate me when I have actually done something besides get the gig.
