I think you're talking about Eddie Lampert. I still remember Jim Cramer expounding about what a genius Lampert was back in '04 or '05 when he was taking over those companies.
I think most of the value in those companies was in the Real Estate which he has probably 'harvested' by now.
He can now go banko and stiff everybody else.
