It's easy to put a nasty face on anything under the mantle of a corporation or the CEO's that so frequently appear as the enemy in the news, but the CEO of the Charlotte-based company Lending Tree has done something downright astounding: giving a little back to the people in the form of a $30,000 holiday hand out.
The CEO of Charlotte-based company Lending Tree is helping his employees share the joy of the season.
He gave them $30,000-- to give away.
They are used to dealing with money at Lending Tree's home offices in Charlotte, but this is a little bit different.
Piles of cash divvied up among employees who were told to spread the wealth. CEO Doug Lebda said, “We were gonna do a year-end gift, we were thinking about iPads.
Instead he decided to give all 160 Charlotte staffers $200 to give to someone else.
