Has Hank Lee's Been Sold?

Postby Richard Kaufman » July 19th, 2001, 11:36 am

The rumor was rampant in New Orleans at the SAM convention that Hank Lee had sold his shop to one of his employees. Can anyone confirm this? :confused:

bump (in case anyone doesn't understand what that means, I am just entering a non-message to move this question back to the top of the list).

I'm very good friends with a guy who is in the know and he says,"No way".

Best,

Richard,

It's funny when you do not show up to a convention or two suddenly your out of buisness, having buisness problems or sold the buisness.

I just spoke to Hank this past Friday and this subject came up. He was quite happy to inform me that he is still owns the buiness and the buisness is doing just fine.

The reason he was not been at any conventions other than his own this year has nothing to do with the buisness being in trouble or being sold.

Feel secure that all is well in HankieLand!

Eric, I don't believe the rumor had anything to do with Hank Lee not having a dealer booth at either the SAM or IBM.
Several people walked up to me and asked if it was true that Hank Lee had sold his business to one of his employees. That's all.

I had heard this rumor prior to the summer conventions and spoke with Bob at Hank Lee's. The rumor I had heard was that Hank Lee was retiring and turning control over to one of his employees. According to Bob, this rumor is completely false.

I think we've satisfactorily answered the rumor, so I'm closing this thread.
