success.\"Richard Kovacevich, chairman and CEO emeritus, Wells Fargo & Co. \"Don\'t commit to the merger or acquisition
without them! I have personally witnessed how hard it is on everyoneemployees, shareholders, communities, and especially
executivesto work through an improperly managed merger. I have known Marks and Mirvis for almost twenty-five years and
