    Look at FBU, Telecom, Fonterror - how well did all these companies do in throwing multi million dollar salaries at more lor less well presented and extremely greedy, but otherwise highly incapable managers.

    Sometimes I am wondering whether the boards who waste less of their shareholders funds for overpaid greed dancers are better off.

    Re Mrs Hrdlicka - the jury is still out, but selling all her shares after only a couple of months in the job is hopefully not the best she is able to do for her multimillion dollar salary. Only an incapable board could have approved this deal without realising that this will end into a PR nightmare. Only a quite incapable CEO would have accepted this deal. Why didn't she ask for cash?

    If this is the best board and CEO can do .... than we just need to hope that they still have been lucky despite their incompetance and that Mrs Hrdlicka is able to perform some other CEO functions (than PR) with more sensitivity and marketing knowledge.

    GLTAH ... and glad I am out.
    At the 2017 AGM the Chairman David Hearn had a 24% against vote to be re-elected. Quite a high number opposing him.
    Everyone else re-elected with less than 1% against.
    That sums up the Board in many ways.

    I am absolutely for real and I live right here in Whangarei. I believe that you can't see how Couta1's original comment is sexist and disrespectful. I don't know whether the CEO's name would have been made fun of if she were a man (I suspect not), but linking a jibe about the name with the appellation "woman" was a sexist putdown.

    Similarly, the admonition "Harden up snowflakes" isn't sexist, but it is a putdown. And I think that is important because here in NZ, there is a very clear connection between our propensity for "innocent" jibes and putdowns, and a whole raft of social ills.

    Over 40 years of clinical experience I have come to understand that there is a slippery slope between sexist and disrespectful comments and grossly abusive language, yelling, pushing and shoving, and (ultimately) bruises and blood. And that is why I call disrespectful postings when I see them and will continue to do so

    On other thread you'll see a man referred to a "Dreck H....." because he is.

    I remember when it was disclosed the DD had sold a few (far from a majority) of his PEB shares in the mid $1's back in the glory days for a what I think wasn't even a hundred thousand (to build a deck if I recall correctly?) it was meet with swift and intense criticism on the forum.

    But "this time is different" so no worries.

    Thats where the "to build a deck" so commonly seen nowadays originated from.

    Seeing as you're only made 80 posts in 4 years I'll opine on this and its meant in a positive spirit.. Appreciate your perspective but its STMOD's job to handle that sort of thing. If you're deeply offended or feel a post is in breech of the terms and conditions of this site then by all means report it but I reckon from years of experience its often way better to grow a thicker skin and understand that some people will get really frustrated from time to time, its just part of being a participant in the market. I think its best some have a cup of tea and a wee nap and everyone keeps calm.

    Pretty sure it was PEB Chairman Swann who said he needed cash for a deck ......but that excuse was met with derision at the time.

    I find it hard to follow your logic that making fun of a persons name makes their comment sexist And I am someone that doesnt take kindly to sexist comments.

    You are more than likely correct that making fun of a persons name is disrespectful but respect is earned not a given and at the moment not many of us respect her. Personally I find the nick name Herd Licker quite amusing in a non sexist way

    Stick a salt block into a trough and see what happens. The herd will have their heads buried in it in no time at all.

    Chairman was it? I probably got confused with the non stop mockery of DD at the time... Unlike PEB, hopefully this CEO isn't mocked for years to come...

    I'm still waiting for ATM's CEO to provide an excuse... "prior commitments" certainly ain't one

    I reckon some people on here would still be cynical if a CEO sold some shares after 10 years at the helm because they needed the money for a relatives late stage experimental cancer treatment. Acknowledge the optics are not great but I think there's a least a decent chance the reason given is genuine what with Australia's crippling top tax rate of 47% and capital gains taxes as well !
