Paying final respects to a titan of the corporate sales world

Charles Michael Cawley was an old-fashioned corporate boss who used power not just to enrich shareholders but to make an impact on those around him.

The MBNA America Bank founder, 75, was buried Nov. 21 at a Catholic church in Camden, Maine, the seaside town where he spent summers as a kid and which he revived as a giant satellite office for the credit-card lender he created. That once-dominant company has now been sold off, rebranded, and forgotten, since even the loudest firms in time prove as fragile as people.

Cawley was a bigger power in Delaware, where MBNA replaced DuPont Co. for a time as the leading employer, and exerted influence on Wall Street and Washington.

Cawley deserves a place beside Tom Watson of IBM, A.P. Giannini of Bank of America, and even Steve Jobs of Apple in the pantheon of masters of U.S. corporate sales culture. More likely he will remain obscure, since MBNA, under Cawley’s partner, Wall Street operator Alfred Lerner, kept a low profile from the early 1980s until it was bought and dismantled by Bank of America 10 years ago.

The Jesuit-educated son of a hard-driving consumer-finance manager, Cawley was a grandiose, blunt, emotional, demanding, giving, and maniacally focused boss. He pioneered the trick of marketing credit cards to colleges (starting with his alma mater, Georgetown University) and professional groups (starting with the nation’s neglected dentists).

To run the accounts his marketing machine created, Cawley turned vacant city lots, closed factories, and a former AP into light-flooded call centers; deployed armies of hungry local tradespeople; half-inspired and half-terrifed new college grads to believe they were gifted managers; built programs for disabled workers; annoyed summer people with his big new house and his fast, loud boat; and fabulously patronized neighborhood cultural, educational, and eating establishments.

“You ‘train’ horses; we educate men and women,” he liked to say. “Attention to detail drives everything we do,” he painted on MBNA’s walls.

“Financial products are sold, not bought,” he told me.

He dispatched lobbyists and directed donations to pass legislation that blocked American credit-card debtors from federal bankruptcy protection. Cawley was unapologetic that his empire’s best customers ran deep into debt.

He collected more than $300 million in his last 10 years as CEO. After Lerner died in 2002, his son Randolph Lerner and other directors clipped Cawley’s option grants and demanded he pay for using company jets. He stepped aside.

Cawley’s charity was extensive. He helped a poor New Jersey kid attend prep school and Yale, only to see the young man die in a drug deal, as recounted in the book The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace, by Jeff Hobbs.

Longer lasting is the mark Cawley left on people such as former MBNA manager Cindy Mann, now principal of Padua Academy in Wilmington. She asked Cawley to teach her “how to think big,” she told me. Like many Cawley lieutenants, she changed careers when the bank was sold and has built the all-girls prep school until there’s a waiting list to get in.

She says Cawley taught her “service, leadership, courage, treatment of people – to think, to vision, to move with courage and conviction – without excuses, or words like can’t.

China Rendez-Vous boat show in push to make yachting ‘cool’ among China’s …

What’s stopping a super-rich Chinese from buying a super yacht? Mainly a poor understanding of yachting in China, according to one luxury-yacht maker.

“The slowing economy [does affect our sales], but it’s the lack of knowledge of the value of yachting that’s our biggest enemy in China,” said Alessandro Tirelli, sales director of Italian luxury-yacht maker Ferretti Group.

Ferretti is one of many exhibitors at the country’s largest boat show, the China Rendez-Vous, in Sanya, Hainan province, which ends on Monday. It is displaying eight vessels up to 30 metres long.

READ MORE: Ahoy! Yacht makers promote boating as lifestyle as they navigate China’s sea of opportunity

A super yacht, defined as a luxury boat longer than 24 metres, typically cost more than 20 million yuan (HK$24 million).

“Chinese people travel a lot today. They go to Paris, London, but they rarely go to the Mediterranean or other places where yachting is considered a way of life. So we have to show it to our customers,” Tirelli said.

In Hong Kong, Ferretti would invite Chinese customers and their families on a one-day tour, giving them a taste of the privacy and relaxation they could enjoy out at sea, he said.

Super yachts are far less popular than luxury cars and private jets among China’s swelling ranks of billionaires. Of some 4,800 super yachts around the world in 2013, only 34 were in mainland China, according to a New Zealand government estimate.

Chinese yacht owners prefer to use their vessels as social venues to meet friends or business partners but seldom go for long trips. To adapt to their preferences, Ferretti has built larger cabins in their boats and cut the number of bedrooms while adding karaoke and cigar rooms.

“[Chinese people] may spend tens of millions of yuan on a private jet as it’s a useful transport tool. But yachts are just an unfamiliar pastime to them,” said China Rendez-Vous founder Lawrence Wang Dafu.

Since the central government launched its anti-graft crackdown in 2013, some Chinese buyers have also turned to overseas markets such as Singapore to buy their super yachts.

Ewa Stachurska, marketing manager of Asia’s leading yacht agency Simpson Marine, said many bought their yachts overseas also to avoid paying the 43.6 per cent tax levied on imported boats in China.

Chinese consumers’ demand was evolving, she said. “In the past, it was much about bling bling. But now … when we recommend Chinese-style designs to our customers, they tell us, ‘Don’t treat me like a Chinese. I want my boat like those everywhere else’,” Stachurska said.

Big home sales of the week include a South End townhouse and country estates … Staff

In yet another week of big sales, Boston’s South End seems to be the real star with six homes selling for well over a million dollars—including one that made it up to $4.3 million. Other towns in the Boston area didn’t fair so badly themselves, with plenty of other home sales that went for over a million. Check these out.

185 W Brookline Street, Boston

This five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 3,981-square-foot Victorian multi-level home sold on November 20 for $4.3 million. The single-family home was built in 1866 and is a big sale even for the already expensive South End with an average home price of $900,000. It has been fully renovated combining historic with modern and has a private garden, a formal dining room, a library/office, a home theater, and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar.

26 Bullard Street, Sherborn

On November 20, this home on 38 acres of land sold for $3,234,700, which is well above the $822,000 average home price in the town west of Boston. Along with the large amount of acreage surrounding the home with wide open rolling meadows and a pond, the 1936 home itself has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and 5,713 square feet of living space. There is a tree-lined driveway, a three-bedroom carriage house with a wishing well, a six-car garage, and a patio.

7 Carver Street, Somerville

This contemporary home built in 2008 sold for $1.4 millon on November 20, which is getting pretty close to Somerville’s most expensive home sale ever and beats out the average home price of $779,000. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,680-square-foot home has an attached garage, a fenced backyard, stainless steel appliances, and a large family room.

75 Sargent Road, Brookline

In a town that frequently has pricey home sales, this Brookline home that sold for $4,950,000 on November 24 still went for well above the average home price of $1,355,000.

The renovated home was built in 1860 and sits on an acre of land with six bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 6,028 square feet of living space. According to the listing it was one of the “original structures in Brookline’s bucolic Sargent Trust” neighborhood and has a library, a 40-foot-long living room, an expansive kitchen, original trees, two patios, and a grand front courtyard.

Related: Boston suburbs with the best nature access

We spend a lot of time in this space giving you news and context about living in Boston’s booming urban center, but there’s another side to the city as well. Massachusetts is full of outdoor spaces, many of which are in reach for people living and working in the Boston metro area.
Here’s a list for people who need to get their urban and natural fixes in equal measure – towns within the I-495 belt with access to serious outdoor opportunities.
We showcase two wilderness areas per town because a diversity of choices is what sets these places apart.

Concord. “A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” – Henry David Thoreau, “Walden”

Concord is top of the list because it’s home to the most iconic outdoor spot in the entire region: Walden Pond. In the 1840s, Henry David Thoreau sowed the seeds of the conservation movement in a small cabin on the pond’s shores, where he lived alone for two years.
Nowadays, you can visit a replica of the cabin, swim in the pond in the summer, or hike around the iconic body of water.

Concord. The majority of the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge is a string of freshwater wetlands that stretches along the Concord River and into the center of town, which makes the area a big draw for birds and birders alike.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees the park, lists 220 different species that have been recorded there. The six-foot wingspan of the Great Blue Heron is a common sight, and if you’re lucky you might see a muskrat or a threatened species of box turtle.
Hunters can take advantage of the winter waterfowl season. In the fall, you can hunt White-tailed Deer with bow and arrow.

Medford. “Something like five miles northerly from Boston lies a great tract of country, all stony hills and table-lands, almost uninhabited, and of wonderful picturesqueness, and wild rugged beauty.”

That is how the Boston Herald described Middlesex Fells in 1879, during a years-long fight to protect the wilderness there from logging and other industrial forces. The Middlesex Fells Reservation, which was finally created in the mid-1880s, is right in Medford’s backyard.
Although I-93 now runs through the middle of the reservation, diminishing its “wild, rugged beauty” somewhat, it still contains miles upon miles of hiking trails. The Fells is centered around Spot Pond, where you can rent kayaks, sailboats, rowboats and canoes in the summer months. The rocky, hilly landscape also makes the Middlesex Fells a particular draw for mountain bikers.
And there’s a ZOO. You can go even in the winter, when Stone Zoo’s website says you’re likely to see black bears, snow leopards, cougars, meerkats and otters, which, frankly, sound like all the best animals anyway.

Medford. On the other side of Medford runs the Mystic River, the shores of which are dotted with parks that make up the state-run Mystic River Reservation.
Now, the Mystic has a checkered history in terms of water quality. As recently as 2013, the EPA gave the whole Mystic River Watershed a grade of “D” because the water met the agency’s cleanliness standards for swimming only 49 percent of the time and for boating only 83 percent of the time.
With that caveat in place, you can row or sail at the Mystic Lakes and motor boat off Mary O’Malley Park (which is actually in neighboring Chelsea). And even if you decide the water is too dirty to go in, you won’t be able to tell from the shores, which are full of picnic spots with beautiful views of the water.

Milton. Milton is for mountain climbers.
…Or at least it’s the best they’re going to get inside the I-495 belt. The Great Blue Hill rises to 635 feet, which is just enough for a killer view of the whole Boston metro region.
The Blue Hills Reservation has more than 125 miles of hiking trails, but what really sets it apart are the 16 historic structures scattered around the park. One of those is the Blue Hills Weather Observatory, which sits at the highest point of the Great Blue Hill.

Milton. From the mountains to the sea…
On the northern border of Milton you’ll find the Neponset River Reservation, where the river turns into a saltwater estuary as it meets the Atlantic Ocean. The marshes make for great fishing, canoeing and kayaking. “Hiking” might be a strong word for what you can do on the Neponset River Reservation, but you can walk around flat trails with pretty views.

Dover. Dover is nicely situated among a constellation of parks, reservations and wildlife refuges. Along the town’s western edge is the Rocky Narrows Reservation. The “Rocky Narrows” refers to a section of the Charles River flowing between cliff walls that are, uh, close together and made of rocks (granite to be specific).
The area is a must-visit for paddlers, but the varied hiking trails and the view from King Phillip’s Overlook should appeal to everyone.

Dover. On Dover’s eastern border you can frolic through the Hale Reservation, which is privately run but open to the public year-round for fishing, hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. The Reservation even runs a number of summer programs guaranteed to get your kids outside during the summer months.
Hale Reservation also borders Noanet Woodlands, which adds 17 miles of hiking trails and a view of the Boston skyline to Dover’s outdoor options.

Sudbury. Another point in favor of Concord is that it’s within easy striking distance of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, but the wilderness there really belongs to Sudbury (and Maynard, Stow and Hudson).
The Assabet River Refuge’s primary appeal is its diversity of wildlife. Both forest and wetlands lie within the refuge’s borders, making it home to migratory birds, deer, otters, turtles, salamanders and a lot more.
The park is also open to hunting turkey, grouse, rabbit and squirrel during their respective seasons.

Sudbury. The Sudbury Dam, along with its beautiful spillway, was built in the late 1800s. It is now in the National Register of Historic Places and the reservoir it created is a backup drinking supply for the Framingham-Sudbury area.
The protected area around the reservoir is open through the winter months to hikers and cross-country skiers. In the summer it’s a peaceful place for picnicking or birdwatching.

Hingham. Having Hingham on this list might look like a curveball, but if you’re looking to get out of Boston and out-of-doors for more than a day trip, Wompatuck State Park is your best bet. The park has more than 250 campsites, many of which accommodate trailer campers.
Wompatuck is less rugged than some of the other state parks. 140 of the campsites have electricity, 12 miles of bike paths are paved, and there’s a boat dock to get you into the reservoir.

Hingham. Hingham can also boast the small but unique “World’s End,” a blob of land in Hingham Bay attached to the mainland by a thin strip of soil dumped there by colonial farmers. The park’s original carriage trails, designed by the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, still remain. And from the tip of the peninsula, you can see the skyline of Boston, 15 miles away across the water.
