Wall Street Analyst Calls Zuckerberg Disrespectful and Immature due to Hoodie

You know you’ve done well when the only way to criticize you is to mock your choice of clothing. Such is the case with Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who recently showed up to meetings with potential investors in New York wearing his signature hoodie.

Zuckerberg, known for his casual t-shirt and sandals combination, was called immature by Michael Pachter, Managing Director for Wedbush Securities.

“Mark and his signature hoodie: He’s actually showing investors he doesn’t care that much; he’s going to be him,” Pachter said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. “I think that’s a mark of immaturity. I think that he has to realize he’s bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he’s got to show them the respect that they deserve because he’s asking them for their money.”

Pachter said that Zuckerberg is well suited to be a product officer or manage the design of the user interface but to be the CEO of the most successful company in modern history? no.

Pachter continues his idiotic opinion, all ironically, while wearing a suit and tie, by saying that Zuckerberg is an eccentric leader who doesn’t want to answer to anybody, much like Steve Jobs.

So a Wall Street analyst criticizes Zuckerberg by comparing him to Steve Jobs, one of the great corporate leaders of our time, and by saying that Zuckerberg is just going to continue being himself, that is, a person who has built one of the most impactful and revolutionary companies in history, with a valuation of $100 billion.

But he’s wearing a hoodie.

Of course, Pachter does recommend buying the IPO when it does go public on May 18th. I guess he believes Facebook can succeed despite Zuckerberg and his terribly unprofessional attire.
