THE DISTILLERY: McNamee applause

Brian McNamee could well be Australia's greatest chief executive in recent history, leaving Paul Perreault with big shoes to fill.

Many would agree with the suggestion Brian McNamee is to CSL, as Don Argus is to BHP Billiton and Wal King is to Leighton Holdings. In actual fact, CSL's rise from obscurity to global powerhouse proportionally eclipses BHP, and CSL’s stability today contrasts with the situation Leighton finds itself in. There’s a case to be made that McNamee is the greatest executive Australia has produced in the modern era.
