Say one thing for Carl Icahn – he’s consistent. Two years ago, the “activist investor” (Carl bristles at the “greenmailer” label) called for the breakup of Time Warner (TWX), and nominated former Viacom CEO Frank Biondi Jr. to run/chop up the company. Now Carl has amassed a stake in Motorola (MOT), which he’d also like to see split up, and he’s nominated a slate of four board members to do the job. Guess who’s back?
Yup, Carl thinks Frank would be equally well-suited to this breakup. The rest of the roster:
• William R. Hambrecht, co-founder of legendary but no longer extant Hambrecht & Quist
• Lionel C. Kimerling, MIT professor of materials science and engineering
• Keith Meister, CEO of Icahn Enterprises, managing director of Icahn investment funds
