Some Ad Execs Have A Photo of Jerry Garcia In Their Office, This Guy Has A Bus

Los Angeles Times is one of my favorite newspapers. They take their Business section seriously, and I appreciate that. For instance, on weekends they run a series called How I Made It, which profiles a local business leader.

This weekend the spotlight is on Michael Sheldon, CEO of Deutsch LA.

About The Donny, he says, “Donny put me on a different stage. He gave me skills that helped propel my career. I’ve always been tremendously ambitious, but he took that ambition and raised it to a level of confidence. When we got involved in a new business pitch, we approached it knowing that we were going to win.”

Which is great an all, but what I want to know is why Sheldon has a 1968 VW microbus in cherry condition parked in his office. Microbus as furniture is kind of cool, sort of like an elephant in a zoo is cool, until you think about it.

Microbuses are meant for adventure. They must be free.

    I hope the VW wouldn’t leave behind the mess that an elephant would.
