Even though Bob Lutz still hasn’t found the time to join us for our Weekly podcast, he recently sat down with Autoblog for a look at his lifelong career. Apart from learning about his past endeavors, Autoblog was able to score a few more details about Bob’s plans for retirement (that begins May 1st). What, exactly, do those plans entail?
No golfing! Apparently Bob has no intention of being the typical retiree. He does not want to end up in Florida, has never golfed, and would prefer not to sit around idly… which still leaves a lot of opportunities open.
Bob’s second book is first on his agenda. This will also lead to a lecture series run by Leigh Speakers Bureau. From a more long-term perspective, Lutz considers leading another company – albeit from a slightly different role. The legendary exec says he has been approached by several companies offering him positions on their boards.
General Motors has also asked Lutz to advise once in a while, although he has not been approached by any other automotive company as of this writing. As is usual for those not officially in the market for a new job, Lutz said that his involvement with another company in management “depends on the size of the wad of money.”
Doesn’t it always?[Source: Autoblog]
