Al Dunlap


Born: Marion County, Indiana, USA


Albert John Dunlap (born July 26, 1937) is a disgraced former corporate executive. He was best known as a turnaround specialist and professional downsizer, although it was later discovered that his reputed turnarounds were elaborate frauds. The ruthless methods he employed to streamline failing companies, most notably Scott Paper, won him the nicknames Chainsaw Al and Rambo in Pinstripes. However, his career was effectively ended after he engineered a massive accounting scandal at Sunbeam Products, now Sunbeam-Oster, that ultimately cost that company its independence. He is barred from serving as an officer of a publicly traded corporation. His widespread layoffs and accounting frauds have put him on several lists of worst CEOs.
