Lew W. Reese, Jr. was seated comfortably in one of the boardrooms of ACRON, Inc. One final test and he would then be hired as one of the company's top executives with a seven figure monthly salary and all the perks. Exactly for what top level office, he was not told by the executive search committee. Our Chairman feels strongly about your name, they told him.
After a few minutes, the charming assistant of the Chairman entered the room and gave him a piece of paper marked 44444.
He almost fell from his chair when he read it because he was clueless as to the officers of the company.
The paper read:


1. PRESIDENT: Mountains of Work. Rush Work. More Work or Bust.
2. CFO: Number Crunches. Value Operations.
3. CORPSEC: monthly meetings every 30 days.
4. VP-PLANNING: Environment and Competition Analysis
5. VP-MARKETING: Market Expansion in all Directions.

B. NAMES OF EXECUTIVES (not in order)

1. Steve A. Norfolk, Jr.
2. Milton David A. Swanson
3. Norman S. E. Waldorf
4. Wilma S. Ocier-Tellaney


a. Who occupies which position?
b. Why are you being considered for the vacant office aside from your qualifications?

Note: Please do not disappoint us by looking at the HINT.

What should be Lew's answers?

Clever, I got WSOT by process of elimination though, I wasn't familiar with that group.

NSEW is all I got, but I marveled at the solution.

Actually, that one got past me. And I am really intrigued by Mr. "Lew W. Reese" And ACRON only occured to me this morning on my way out the door!

That was hard.

Very good. Very hard. I got the "Initial" idea, but couldn't associate all of them.

Posted by MurfQ07/14/03
Impresive! All I got was the NSEW one.

Posted by taniapereira9907/25/03
Man that was hard... Amazingly well thought out though! Hard to know all the other ones than the basic.

Griphook you should write a book! I haven't found one of your teasers that I haven't loved. This one is one of my favorites. I found the MDAS and NESW. Very clever, especially with the title.
