ATI board members say their CEO wasn't up to the job

February 2, 2008

Albany-  More information on the resignation of Albany Tomorrow CEO Kenneth Weaver. A member of the executive committee told us Weaver simply wasn't up to the job.

Executive Committee Member Emily Jean McAfee wouldn't talk on camera but told us Weaver came to Albany not realizing how challenging retail recruitment would be. She says ATI did clearly state the challenges. McAfee says both Weaver and board chairman Dr. C.W. Grant sat down and agreed this just wasn't the right fit and it was better if Weaver left now rather than later.

Weaver had a one year contract with ATI. His family never made the move to Albany.
