During his admissions interview for Harvard Business School, he was asked if he was smart, to which he famously replied, "I'm fucking smart."[1] Skilling earned his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1979, graduating in the top five percent of his class.

Enron

As a consultant for McKinsey & Company, Skilling worked with Enron in 1987, helping the company create a forward market in natural gas. Skilling impressed Kenneth Lay in his capacity as a consultant, and was hired by Lay in 1990 as chairman and chief executive officer of Enron Finance Corp. In 1991, he became the chairman of Enron Gas Services Co., which was a result of the merger of Enron Gas Marketing and Enron Finance Corp. Skilling was named CEO/managing director of Enron Capital & Trade Resources, which was the subsidiary responsible for energy trading and marketing. He was promoted to president and chief operating officer (second only to Lay) of Enron in 1997, while remaining the head of Enron Capital & Trade Resources. In 1999, Enron launched EnronOnline, an Internet-based trading operation, which was used by virtually every energy company in the U.S. McKinsey & Company is a privately owned management consulting firm that focuses on solving issues of concern to senior management in large corporations and organizations. ...

A Chief Operating Officer (COO) is a corporate officer responsible for managing the day-to-day activities of the corporation. ... The front page of EnronOnline EnronOnline was considered by many to be the first very successful e-commerce website. ...


Skilling began advocating a novel idea: the company didn't really need any "assets." By pushing the company's aggressive investment strategy, he helped make Enron the biggest wholesaler of gas and electricity, with $27 billion traded in a quarter. On February 12, 2001, Skilling was named CEO of Enron, receiving $132 million in a single year.


The firm's figures, however, had to be accepted at face value. Under Skilling, Enron adopted mark to market accounting, in which anticipated future profits from any deal were tabulated as if real today. Thus, Enron could record gains from what over time might turn out losses, as the company's fiscal health became secondary to manipulating its stock price on Wall Street during the Tech boom. But when a company's success is measured by agreeable financial statements emerging from a black box, a term Skilling himself admitted, actual balance sheets prove inconvenient. Indeed, Enron's unscrupulous actions were often gambles to keep the deception going and so push up the stock price, which was posted daily in the company elevator. An advancing number meant a continued infusion of investor capital on which debt-ridden Enron in large part subsisted. Its fall would collapse the house of cards. In economics, mark to market is the act of assigning a value to a position held in a tradeable financial instrument based on the current market price for that instrument. ...

Under pressure to maintain the illusion, Skilling began to behave strangely. In April 2001, he verbally attacked Wall Street Analyst Richard Grubman[4], who questioned Enron's unusual accounting practice during a recorded conference call. When Grubman complained that Enron was the only company that could not release a balance sheet along with its earnings statements, Skilling replied "Well, thank you very much, we appreciate that . . . asshole." Though the comment was met with dismay and astonishment by press and public, it became an inside joke among many Enron employees, mocking Grubman for his perceived meddling rather than Skilling's lack of tact.[5]


Skilling greeted the California energy crisis with amusement, jokingly asking one meeting of Enron employees the difference between California and the Titanic ("At least when the Titanic went down, the lights were on").[6] Skilling later attributed the remark to frayed relations between Enron and California.[7] His employees, meanwhile, plotted to keep the price of energy high in California.[8] Overview The California electricity crisis of 2000 and 2001 followed the partial deregulation, in 1996, of the electricity market in the state. ...

Skilling unexpectedly resigned on August 14 of that year, citing personal reasons, and he soon sold large blocks of his shares in the corporation.[9] Then Enron chairman Kenneth Lay, who previously served as CEO for 15 years, returned as CEO until the company declared bankruptcy in December of 2001.

Indictment and trial

Skilling was indicted on 35 counts of fraud, insider trading, and other crimes related to the collapse of Enron. He surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on February 19, 2004, and pleaded not guilty to all charges. The main reason for his arrest was his probable knowledge of the fraudulent transactions within Enron. About a month after quitting Enron, Skilling sold almost $60 million of his stake in the company (in blocks of 10,000 to 500,000 shares), leading to the prosecutors' allegation that he sold those shares with inside information of Enron's impending bankruptcy. Skilling's attorney is Daniel Petrocelli, the 52-year-old civil litigator who represented Ron Goldman's father against O.J. Simpson in civil suit. Skilling spent $40 million in preparation for the trial, at least $23 million of which going to his defense lawyers' retainer. Skilling's younger brother Mark is an attorney and assisted his legal team during the criminal trial.

The trial began on January 30, 2006 in Houston, despite repeated protests from defense attorneys calling for a change in venue on the grounds that "it was impossible to get a fair trial in Houston – the epicenter of Enron's collapse. Enron's bankruptcy, the biggest in U.S. history when it was filed in December 2001, cost 20,000 employees their jobs and many of them their life savings. Investors lost billions." When asked during trial in the street, Skilling admitted that industrial dominance and abuse constituates a global problem: "Oh yes, yes sure, it does."

Skilling, known for his arrogance and harsh attitude, came off in a mostly positive light during the trial, though he did lose his temper on the witness stand.[13] In the criminal law, a conspiracy is an agreement between natural persons to break the law at some time in the future, and, in some cases, with at least one overt act in furtherance of that agreement. ...

In a front page interview with The Wall Street Journal on 17 June 2006, Skilling claims, amongst other things, that: (1) he had been in a depression after the Enron bankruptcy and considered committing suicide, but that his indictment actually lifted his spirits and brought him out of his depression, (2) he states that the worst witness against him was himself, and (3) he says that he will be able to survive a long prison term - as long as he is given "something to do, something to accomplish" while in prison.

On October 23, 2006, Skilling was sentenced to 24 years and 4 months in prison, and fined $45 million. The case is currently under appeal. Skilling's request to remain free during the appeal was denied by Judge Patrick Higginbotham of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on December 12, 2006. In ordering Skilling's immediate imprisonment, the judge wrote, "Skilling raises no substantial question that is likely to result in the reversal of his convictions on all of the charged counts",[14] although the order also noted "serious frailties" in the convictions. is the 296th day of the year (297th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

2008 Events

Prior to the trial even beginning, attorneys for Skilling requested that the notes taken from FBI agents on the interviews with Andrew Fastow be turned over and early after a judge ordered that the notes be turned over to the defence, a number of inconsistancies were discovered.[17]


On April 3 2008, Skilling's defense attorney, Daniel M. Petrocelli, argued with government's prosecutors that Skilling's trial and in the end the conviction itself was based on honest services theory which he said did not apply to Jeffrey Skilling. This argument was based on the fact that, even though Skilling committed illegal financial manoeuvres, he did so in order to save the company and did not profit from it.[18] This in turn could lead to all of his convictions being overturned; however, the chances are very narrow[19].


Experts believe Skilling's best chance lies in citing a parallel appeals court decision two years ago that threw out guilty verdicts on three Merrill Lynch bankers accused of helping Enron to inflate profits.[20]
