Lean Blog Audio — 304: Remembering a Great Leader, Paul O’Neill (1935-2020)


It was a sad weekend, hearing about the passing of Paul H O’Neill, Sr. on Saturday. He was 84.

I had the good fortune to meet and spend time with Mr. O’Neill on a few occasions and I’ll share some reflections in this post. My condolences go out to his family and friends, and especially to my Value Capture colleagues who worked with him at Alcoa or at the firm over the past 15 years.

Here are his obituaries from the WSJ, the New York Times, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. You can also read more about his life on a memorial page that his family set up and people are sharing memories there.
