A West End firm has fired one of its employees after she called a client a "c***" in a pub fight.
The manager from Pemberton Greenish was drinking with colleagues in a Chelsea pub near the firm's office when she became embroiled in an argument with another group of drinkers. One of Pemberton Greenish's admin staff was punched during the altercation.
When a person in a third, uninvolved, group intervened, the Pemberton Greenish manager called them a c***. Unfortunately the group comprised staff from Cadogan, a property investment company and one of Pemberton Greenish's biggest clients.
Simon Slater, CEO of Pemberton Greenish, told RollOnFriday "we deeply regret that this incident occurred. We have apologised unreservedly both to Cadogan and the individual employee." He said the firm took immediate action when the incident came to its attention and a disciplinary process was conducted, "following which the manager is no longer at the firm".
PG has a fondness for the C word. Prior to her conviction for stalking, when the (now ex) head of residential real estate discovered her husband was having an affair, she phoned up the mistress and repeatedly shouted "c**t" down the line.
