Because June 1 is always New Year’s Day in the Deloitte universe, I woke up this morning to a shit-ton of Deloitte personnel news, so let’s get right to it. First, Deloitte Global CEO Punit Renjen was elected to sit in the big chair for four more years. His second term began today. It has […]
Anyone who is a fan of the NHL knows that hockey players rarely call each other by their first or last names. They call each other by their hockey nicknames. There’s really no rhyme or reason for how hockey players get their nicknames. But usually, you get your hockey nickname by either adding “-er,” “-y,” […]
A couple weeks ago, we got an email from a tipster who told us that EY Switzerland CEO Marcel Stalder was “dead meat” due to the firm’s handling of sexual harassment allegations made against a male managing partner by a former female associate. Well, turns out this person was right; Stalder has stepped down as […]
It’s listicle time, you guys. This one comes from an outfit called Brand Finance, which calls itself “the world’s leading independent branded business valuation and strategy consultancy.” At today’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Brand Finance released its Global 500 report, which ranked the world’s 500 most valuable brands. The report also ranked the […]
Each year, Glassdoor puts out a list of the highest-rated CEOs in the U.S., based on anonymous employee reviews and feedback. Up until last year, the annual ranking was limited to 50 CEOs, but in 2017, Glassdoor extended the list to the top 100. Good thing, because while three Big 4 CEOs made Glassdoor’s 2018 […]
Let's see which Big 4 CEO we have here… Clearly we are referring to the man on the right and not the woman on the left because LOL a woman CEO of a Big 4 accounting firm yeah right! So, who could this be? Click on over to page 2 to find out.The strapping young […]
KPMG CEO John Veihmeyer — Notre Dame alum, dedicated steward of an employer of choice — is on the guest list at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week. We don't have his itinerary in hand but it stands to reason that he'll have a hectic schedule of interviews, networking, and general CEO-y stuff on […]
~ Update includes quote from Britt Aboutaleb of Fashionista
We meant to get to this on Friday but there was a social engagement occurring that couldn’t be avoided; you know how it is. Anyhoo, the Ernst & Young CEO sat down with Bloomberg last Friday to talk tax policy and we found a few things rather interesting. Watch and we’ll chat about some things after the jump:
First things first: How about the two hotties that Bloomberg threw at JT?
Second: why does the MSM always refer to the “Big 4” as the “so-called Big 4”? Does Big 4 carry some negative connotation in some corners of society or is it meant to be a not-so-subtle dig, like when you call the token short guy on your team “big guy”?
Third and of utmost importance: what’s with JT’s footwear? Are those Timberlands? Does he just put on whatever the wife lays out for him or did she happen to take all of his wingtips to the cobbler this week? OR did he just get back from hiking the Appalachian Trail à la Mark Sanford?
Whatever the situation is, they look like they’ve gotten some good use. We’re not sure what Jimbo likes to do for recreation but it must involve some rugged backdrops that may involve him wearing a flannel shirt and chopping wood.
Britt Aboutaleb, one of the editors of our sister site, Fashionsita, had these thoughts, “I can’t even see the shoes — they look like they’ve emerged from a swamp! Maybe he forgot the shoes he was supposed to change into after trekking through the snow? Or maybe he didn’t realize his feet would be caught on camera…”
God, we hope JT could have arranged for some car service rather than schlepping through the snow. On the other hand, maybe walking to interviews is part of a green initiative? Either way, he could have brought the shoes along and changed into them. Just a thought.
On the other, to say that this is a fashion faux-pas would be an understatement akin to saying “E&Y had a few layoffs last year.”
