Many of our readers are attached one way or another to an organization called Vistage (formerly TEC). Every month, the members of each group around the world gather together to listen. They are visited by a resource speaker, who has a story to tell about management, about building a company.
Frank Maguire was on his way to tell his story, one last time. He died with his boots on.
Bud Carter, a Chair in Atlanta, in an email last night, described Frank, “a unique man whose professional life began as a late night disc-jockey in New York City, led him to serve in the Kennedy White House, work for the ABC network (hiring Ted Koppel), to be on the ground floor side-by-side with Fred Smith during the Fed Ex start-up, and there with Colonel Sanders when he sold.”
We will miss him on the circuit. Rest in Peace, Francis X. Maguire.
