CEO Robert Flexon discusses a culture refresh that helped restore Dynegy to an energy powerhouse
A Houston energy powerhouse in the 1990s, Dynegy ran into significant financial and leadership challenges that pushed it into bankruptcy in 2011. Just two days after the company emerged from bankruptcy court, the new CEO Robert Flexon unveiled a cultural overhaul that became an important pillar of its successful strategy to create a fast-growing, agile company with people re-energized by a One Team, One Goal strategy. In an interview with Nick Neuhausel of Senn Delaney, Flexon describes how the culture-shaping work has been a critical foundation to creating the winning mindset that has propelled three-fold growth, enhanced talent attraction and retention, and built a long-term sustainable portfolio with revenues of $5.5 billion.
