UN­HEARD OF

Forbes - - LEADERBOARD -

Bill Austin left his hear­ing-aid busi­ness, Starkey, to go off and save the world. In his ab­sence, his tone-deaf un­der­lings made a mess of things. Read­ers gave ’em an ear­ful. KAT PENNO: “Such a shame to read this. Starkey has al­ways been an in­no­va­tive com­pany.” @SETHLOW: “To­tally re­mov­ing the fish-tank clean­ings from my ex­pense re­port go­ing for­ward.” @KRISHNAKGUPTA: “Wow, this is nuts—and a re­minder that med­i­cal-de­vice com­pa­nies can oc­ca­sion­ally be­come mas­sive busi­nesses.”
