Maxxam corporation - The poster child of corporate irresponibility.

Maxxam corporation is directed by CEO Charles Hurwitz. Subsidiaries include Pacific Lumber and Kaiser Aluminum. Under Maxxam's robe Charles Hurwitz has plundered the redwood forests of Northern California, blazed a trail of legal and regulatory recklessness, a costly, and unecessary labor dispute with the United Steelworkers of America, pioneered unsafe working conditions and had surprisingly bad financial performance.

An article in Business Week named Maxxam's board as the 10th worst on its roster of "The Worst Boards of Directors."
