I cut my teeth after college in the early years at BrightPoint working for Bob Laikin’s enterprise. The organization taught me more than I ever learned in any of my course work in college. Laikin invented logistics in the wireless industry and created thousands of good jobs around the world. He built his enterprise from scratch into a multibillion-dollar Fortune 500 company over 23 years. How many people can put that on a resume? When the history books are written and future MBAs study BrightPoint in school, Laikin should be listed as one of the brightest and respected business leaders of our time.
