Kwittken On BP CEO: ‘I Think He Needs to Stop Speaking’


Aaron Kwittken, CEO of mid-size agency Kwittken & Co., appeared on CNBC this morning to talk BP and the Gulf Coast oil spill.

“You have to give (BP CEO Tony Hayward) credit for stepping out in front when a lot of CEOs hide in times of crisis,” he said.

However, now that he has stepped out, Kwittken says he needs to step back. “I think he needs to stop speaking and have others speak on his behalf.”

For now, Hayward is not stepping back. TVNewser has details on ABC News’ exclusive interview with him, which aired last night.
