One Sunday evening in 1985 Jack had a few of us at his house and as we were leaving he asked me to remain and said do you have time to stay and have a cup of coffee I said sure so we talked about several things as we often did we just talked about various. And sundry items and then he said I plan to named Warren CEO of Stephens I said good well he named Warren CEO of Stephens the following Friday so I knew before Warren did that he was going to be set you up Stephens we were all summoned down the. Street to the Coachman's in nobody to my knowledge had any idea what it. Was about Warren Stephens 49 years old today sothey but my CEO of Stephens me there we were on his 29th birthday February 18th 1986 and I. Was pregnant with our first child miles Jack knew that the company had to change Warren was the embodiment of that change he was trained for the job and it 29 mr. Stevens realized that Warren had you know integrity and. Discipline and a competitiveness. A desire to succeed and he was right. Think Warren has masterfully guided the. Company through the continuing evolution and certainly more of a public face on the company than either will or Jack particularly around system of free enterprise. And capitalism for the benefit not just of our company but of our country and I think Warren has done a great job of taking the Stephens culture and building on it and making Stevens into an even better firm Warren's just like. Jack he is doing the same thing in that business he has the same qualities that his dad had Warren has done a fabulous job they still have. The same legacy that Jack and we're created you do business with them on a handshake orange just he's a great human being and he's one of the really special people in the world a true. Capitalist puts his own money at risk not someone else's but his and the Stevens put their own money at risk in all types of situations Warren Stephens continues to do the same thing it became apparent that young people really don't understand capitalism and free markets and how it has. Improved their lives and the lives of millions of people around around the world and so we've launched this website and these videos in these podcasts to help people tell the. Story of how they are business success and in a free market capitalist exciting the lives of themselves their families the people that work at those companies but we're making progress well I think again it goes back to Jack picking the right people and I think. He picked Warren and he picked Warren after watching him for a number of years and I think he thought he would be the right person to to put in that situation and he put him in early enough and he could watch. Him long enough and help him if need be I don't think he had to help him very much if any but he could watch him long enough to know that he had made the right decision in putting Warren in there I don't think anyone else could have led the firm like. He has no one you.
