He wanted something, he got it

“The painting of the jets by the new leader was perplexing to those at the top of the company. Although the painting project wasn’t expensive enough to move the needle at the massive company, it did cost a lot of money. Furthermore, the jets didn’t need to be painted and the reasoning for the move was unclear. It was another lesson about Jeff Immelt. If he wanted something, he got it and it was best not to question too much.”
