The article focuses on Donald Trautlein, chairman and chief executive officer of Bethlehem Steel Corp. Trautlein, a much admired chief executive in a basic industry, has been a financial executive himself, a controller and as a former partner of Price Waterhouse, has dealt with financial executives in a dozen or so more industries over a number of years. Apart from music, there have been three major influences in his life. Don Trautlein continually underscores the importance of the financial area in all aspects of business. In guiding the corporation into a new, more profitable era, he has learned to use his financial background in a new way. Trautlein believes that a financial background will be very useful in assessing possible acquisitions to a basic business.
