If employees of HRG Group (AKA Harbinger 2.0) want to discuss he who shall not be named, they'd best create some code words now. "Hockey Sticks" might work, as would "Ilphay Alconefay." In related news, apparently the new guy has no respect for the blood, sweat, and tears [redacted] put into this thing. Just because he walked away of his own accord doesn't mean he vacated the premises in his heart. You'll be hearing from his people.
Harbinger Group Inc. said it promoted its president Omar Asali to be chief executive officer and changed its name as the firm distances itself from former chairman Philip Falcone. The new name is HRG Group, the New York-based company said Monday in a statement.
