9780615855370: The Merchants

Gerry Pratt's career took him from newspaper reporter to chairman and chief executive of what was at the time one of Oregon's largest Savings & Loan Associations with more than fifty in-store branches in Oregon and Alaska. During his career with the late Fred G. Meyer, he celebrated almost every Christmas and Birthday with his mentor and friend from 1960 through Meyer's death September 2, 1978. During that period they traveled extensively together through Alaska following the discovery of the Prudhoe Bay Oil fields, to the Orient, Mexico as well trips to Europe and New York exploring possibilities of long-term financing and meetings with analysts. Pratt was apprenticed in real estate under Meyer and served on the board of directors of the Fred Meyer Corp. as well as a director of the Meyer-owned, seven privately held real estate corporations. These experiences, along with his work with Business Week Magazine and extensive coverage of major mergers of retail organizations have led to this fictionalized story of the Merchants

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 161 pages. The story of the Merchants, while analogous in many ways to specific deals in the massive mergers and acquisitions era of the retailing business, is basically an insiders view of the how and why local firms have sold out. The results have been decisions on corporate policy and management are now made in places like New York or in the giant mid-West headquarters of publicly held corporations. The power of shaping everything from local politics to creation of major highways has moved to managements that are now influenced by mutual funds, pension fund managers, institutional investors and major endowments. Those in favor of the shift will argues it has led to lower prices and leaner -- at the local level -- management costs. The Merchants harkens back to the times when retailers were owned and controlled by resident families that could influence local elections and exert substantial influence on the local press. This is the fictionalized story of one such family, and traces the evolution to the current trend. Isaiah Wolfe inherits the control of a family-controlled corporation and all the merchandising techniques that made these firms successful. It is a story of intrigue, matriarchal control and love that touches on inter-religious compromise. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
