Rackspace looks for CEO amid a price war

“The best bet for Rackspace is to get an in-house candidate — just because culture is so important to the organization,” said Philbert Shih, an industry analyst and managing director for Structure Research. “An internal candidate probably has a leg up, versus getting someone from outside the company. Again, because the organization’s focus and value proposition is just so built around the culture there, fostering the culture and it permeating across their product line.

“It would make so much sense to get an internal candidate and promote them up to the CEO role.”
