The new ownership is probably capable of hiring qualified people.  The 
billionaire investor got that way by being correct more often than not 
on his choice of 'distressed companies' to buy and how to turn them

intelligent enough not to hire their children, personal security, 
personal pilots, etc... as leaders.
