If there is one CEO in the cellular industry who has Wall Street heads turning, Jim Cramer thinks it is T-Mobile CEO John Legere.
"You might think that in a company with tens of thousands of workers, one individual, even if he is the top guy, just can't make much of a difference. I'm telling you that view is dead wrong," the "Mad Money" host said.
Cramer has been following T-Mobile CEO John Legere, as he launched what Cramer describes as a one-man guerrilla war against the rest of the industry. He has done so by creating a mobile company that provides transparency with no long-term contracts, cheaper prices and better competition.
And based on the strong quarter reported by T-Mobile on Tuesday morning, these tactics are working; it confirmed that it added 1.8 million customers. The "Mad Money" host thinks the stock would have been up even higher on Tuesday, if it weren't for the fact that T-Mobile has been spending so much to build out its network to compete more aggressively in the future.
Cramer spoke with John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, on how his honest leadership style has helped the company trigger growth, including the introduction of "uncarrier" services. This eliminated the need for two-year contracts and overage charges; T-Mobile will even pay up to $650 per line to end a contract with a customer's current carrier.
