How tall is your CPO?

12 August 2008
Paul SnellYou may recall this blog a few months back which featured the results of a survey saying that business leaders were more likely to excel at sport than in academia. There was a bit of paper talk recently that US presidential candidate Barack Obama is “too thin to win” – that his slim stature is a turn-off for US voters. It follows a long line of “trends”, which include the tallest candidate winning the US presidential election 30 times (compared with 14 for the shortest), and the Russian leadership alternating between bald and hairy men. And apparently 58 percent of top US male CEOs are six foot or above, compared with 14.5 per cent of the male population in general. How tall is your CPO? Can you identify any “trends” in the recruitment of top purchasing professionals?
