From the Print Edition:
Arnold Schwarzenegger, July/Aug 03
(continued from page 8)
Q: About 20 years ago you sat down and created a cigar brand. That cigar forever changed the nature of your business. Where do you think this company will be in 20 years?
A: I have no idea. My son, Sathya, shows some signs of interest; he's a senior in college. My daughter, Meera, is a sophomore, so it's too early to tell.
Q: Would you like your son to take over?
A: If that's what he wants to do, he can do it. He's already spent time with the Fuentes in high school, he's worked with the salesmen out on the road, and he's worked in the retail store for years. He's seen every part of the company. If he shows interest and he wants to do it, that's great; if he doesn't, that's fine too. But the world's open to him -- whatever he wants. So things are alright.
