Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey 'should be fired,' according to NYU professor Scott Galloway
Jack Dorseyhas a second job: CEO of Square, the digital payments company he started after being fired from Twitter in 2008.
- This dual role "renders him totally incapable of providing the attention and leadership" Twitter needs, investor and
NYUStern professor Scott Gallowayargued in a recent interview.
- Galloway outright calls for Dorsey's firing — but Dorsey has been notoriously resilient in the role: He was previously fired, but came back years later. He's also faced calls for his ousting from
investorsbefore and won.
Jack Dorsey is the CEO of two major publicly traded companies: Twitter and Square.
But, according to Scott Galloway, the bestselling author and a professor of marketing at
"He should be fired," Galloway told Yahoo Finance Live. "This is a big company with thousands of employees that plays a big role in the discourse of society, and about 1 p.m. every day he peaces out and he goes to another firm," Galloway said, in reference to Dorsey's dual role as CEO of Square.
Galloway argued that Dorsey being a part-time boss at both companies "renders him totally incapable of providing the attention and leadership" that Twitter needs.
This isn't the first time Galloway, an investor in Twitter, has called for Dorsey's ouster. He's repeatedly been critical of Twitter and the company's leadership, and has specifically called for Dorsey to be replaced. And Galloway isn't the only Twitter investor who's said as much.
Dorsey has been fired from Twitter before, back in 2008. He eventually returned to the company as CEO in 2015, having founded and succeeded with Square in the intervening years.
