The Sting of Secrecy is There For Everyone to See

Secrecy seldom pays off as a communication strategy and never has that been more evident than in the recent cases of insurance giant Marsh & McLennan Cos. and
pharmaceutical company Merck. When a company or a CEO is routinely described as "notoriously secretive" my first thought is "I'm so glad I'm not in charge of that company's
communications," because sooner or later, scandal will strike. And that's exactly what happened to Marsh & McLennan.
