Reputation expert weighs in: Social media and reputation management expert Ken Wisnefski, who is founder and chief executive officer of internet marketer WebiMax, located on the Camden waterfront just across from Philadelphia, finds Amaro’s remarks hard to fathom.
“You have to ask yourself, in this day and age where everything public figures say is under so much scrutiny, how is it that someone with so much authority can exhibit such poor judgment?” Wisnefski said. “How can that person then be expected to make good decisions?”
You have to wonder if this could end up being the final straw that leads to Amaro’s overdue dismissal. Wisnefski believes it might.
“The reality is that if Ruben loses the faith of the fans, then he loses credibility and authority, making it that much harder to get anything done,” Wisnefski said. “By insulting the fans he’s really only putting his own job at risk.”
If Amaro does indeed lose his job, this latest dustup might end up being the best news that Phillies’ fans have received since that day in 2008 when he was named GM.
