Kenneth Lay, who had been the chief executive officer (CEO) of Houston Natural Gas, became Enron's CEO and chairman, and quickly rebranded Enron into an energy trader and supplier.  By 1993, Enron had set up a number of limited liability special purpose entities that allowed Enron to hide its liabilities while growing its stock price.  In August of 2001, shortly after the company achieved $100 billion in revenues, then-CEO Jeff Skilling unexpectedly resigned, prompting Wall Street to question the health of the company.
