With someone of his salary, why would he need to do stupid things like that, and also this stupid sexual harassment case. Christ, if he's that desperate for a model girlfriend, his money would get him one in less time than it takes to even CONSIDER the word harassment.
"soft core 'adult' titles" ?
Sounds like he was given a choice;
"resign and get a nice package, or don't and get kicked."
maybe he left to save the face of the company, even if said allegations are false.
Bet its cause of HP's random buying spree of late and their CEO's inability to actually use the assets itsobtained.
Pig caught with snout in trough! Breaking News!
The guy causes a loss of face AND a 10% drop in stocks and gets 40 million$ for it.
Who hires guys with a contract that says "if you leave of your own free will, we'll pay you for it!"?
Dear HP, I feel I'm capable of dropping your stock severely (simply hiring an unknown person as CEO should do this) and will only take 10% of your last CEO's golden handshake upon leaving.
It might have been written into his contract that for the years he serves he would get a 1% bonus of increases in NPV during that time or something (I'm speculating). But it's not unreasonable to have that kind of clause in a contract, so when you leave it's not unreasonable to expect to get it!
Someone had to say it.
and since she was in "softcore porn" you know you'll be in like flint as well!
on another note, this is becoming a trend these high profile firings. The guy who was incharge of the new iPhone has just been sacked as well! I wonder why?
If she was a nun â€¦ and he was inappropriate â€¦ok sexual harassment
Soft Core Porn Actressâ€¦ Money grabbing, headline attracting meat bag.
Ambulance chasing lawyers acting on behalf of â€¦ .. leeches
Who cares? He is gonna get 25 million. I'd never do a 9-5 job again if I got that much. Hell I'd probably never work again period.
Wait.... he fell on his sword? surely she did?
It's very typical for people in power; remember that they have aspired to, and reached, their positions for a very good reason. One common thread that you find woven in these cases is a sense of entitlement when someone reaches achieves that level.
Maybe the guy is innocent and just models his professional conduct on "Mad Men"... At least he can pull, I can't believe Steve B. gets many shags...
I don't get these guys.. they end up in bathrooms putting their foot under stalls- or like spitzer spending 4k think it was on a high priced hooker
this guy was so caught up in it all he harassed a co worker probably against his better judgement.. laundering money on top of it (allegedly).. imagine what huang is doing- I bet he swings from a rope into his harem
