A Rose by any other name

Top Compaq executive John Rose is to leave the company. The latest move is a further sign that all is not well at the Houston company. Rose was closely linked to Eckhard Pfeiffer, CEO of Compaq until his career at the firm was abruptly brought to a standstill by chairman of the board Ben Rosen. Rosen and two others are running the firm as a triumvirate. In other ways, Compaq is reminiscent of the days of Rome. The triumvirate is looking for a new Nero to push rthe firm forward. ®
