Before Dave Fecher took over HP Anaheim Education, the group was a
wonderful multicultural mix of people: men from the USA, Pakistan,
England, Nigeria, Iran; women from the USA and Ireland. Two years
later it was all white, all male American.
Everyone who knew him, knew him as a classic right-wing racist. Lew
Platt fought a lonely battle against this bigotry but when he retired
it swept over the company. Fecher was in the avant-garde.
