Former Qwest CEO Joseph Nacchio: Tales From a White-Collar Prison Sentence
Former telecommunications company chief executive Joseph Nacchio entered prison in 2009 out of shape, depressed and anxious.
Fifty-four months later, Mr. Nacchio, 64 years old, who once ran Qwest Communications International Inc., has emerged physically unrecognizable from his pre-incarceration life.
Prison appears to have shaved years off his looks. He has broad shoulders from a daily regimen of lifting weights and five -mile walks and runs. He has a goatee and his head, formerly covered with black hair, is completely shaved and tan. He says his blood pressure and cholesterol are lower than when he entered prison and his body fat has dropped dramatically. He thinks he looks like actor Edward Norton on his federal Bureau of Prisons identification card.
