« The new plan also preserves Lord. Culp’s chances of scooping a $ 230 million maximum bonus, « wrote the Financial Times. « But now all he has to do is drive GE’s stock above $ 16. 68 to reap the full amount instead of $ 31 as his plan was for 2018. « 

The newspaper noted that the stroke of luck for Culp, who turned GE very well in general, came from the fact that « GE’s aerospace division cut 20 percent of its workforce this year to improve margins. « . «
