CLEVELAND - May 14, 2019 - PRLog -- The premier business biographers at Braun Ink have released Billion or Bust!: Growing a Tech Company in Texas, the short, action-packed story of how former Rackspace CEO, Lanham Napier, pursued his passion for creating jobs in his home state of Texas. Billion or Bust! also is the first release of the Braun Collection—compelling business-leader stories delivered in a variety of educational formats.
Mr. Napier, a fifth-generation Texan, loved his home state and creating jobs. He joined the managed hosting company, Rackspace, in 1999 as CFO. Fast forward to 2011 when Mr. Napier, now CEO, guides Rackspace to its first $1 billion in revenue. His book includes anecdotes on converting defunct mall space to corporate headquarters;
In a recent interview Mr. Napier said, "I'm really excited to share the Rackspace story. The team I worked with did what many thought was undoable—built a billion-dollar tech company in San Antonio, then known for Tex-Mex food, the Alamo, and a major military presence, not tech capabilities."
In addition to the printed book of Billion or Bust!, Braun Ink has produced a study guide, chapter summary, presentation and video that enable corporate leaders and college instructors to share the Rackspace story using the format most effective for their audiences. The Braun Collection also offers the option to conduct a video call with Mr. Napier.
"I'm thrilled to release our first book in the Braun Collection,"
Billion or Bust! and related products are available for purchase at braunink.com, and the book is also available at Amazon.
