Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO
NBC News.com ^ | updated 8/2/2012 5:02:00 PM ET

Posted on 08/02/2012 8:20:51 PM PDT by MuttTheHoople

TUCSON, AZ — The following is a statement from Vante: Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company. The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

HA! HA! TOO LATE! I post on an SEC sports message board where we also discuss other topics. One of the posters is a doctor. In a committee meeting, they had to choose a company from which to buy their radiofrequency catheter tips....and Vante lost out because of Adam Smith's bullying of a poor teenaged girl trying to put food on her family's table as a result of the Obama Depression.

I suspect that the majority of Vante’s employees did the snoopy dance when they heard that the esteemed Mr. Smith had been canned.

I give Vante credit for doing the right thing. I sure don’t hold the actions of their former moronic CFO against them.

I’ve been concerned about that today. He very publicly destroyed his life. No doubt he is distraught. He may be a jerk, but I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. I pray for him and his 4 boys. Hopefully, God can use this to turn Mr. Smith’s life around.

To me the absolute best part is, Vante fired Adm Smith with out any pressure from the right.
They did it because it was the right thing to do. He brought dishonor to the company.

If I were in a position to do so, I’d want to do business with Vante now, for firing his ass so very quickly after discovering his misdeed. Not every company does the right thing (e.g. JPM, Goldman Sachs) but Vante seems to be ok. (Admittedly, that’s being a bit generous to the big banks. Not every company is comprised of so many psychopaths as those two.)

Perhaps. But personally, I will not shed a tear. He has been this level of idiot for some time. One doesn’t do something like that ‘out of character’.

Granny always said everyone has a purpose. For some it’s to serve as a bad example. He’s served his purpose.

How much did that “free water” cost you, Mr. Smith?

It’s obvious that a teeny minority of elitists have gone too far in sticking their fingers in the eyes of the middle class.

Corporate CEO’s have been playing the radical social and political agenda with other people’s money. The vast majority of investment and purchasing power comes from the middle class and corporate America just met them head on. They are not as slutty, stupid and fascist as liberalism’s CEOs. They were out of touch and Wednesday was a wake up call for anyone in their job for profit.

Google is going to go down with the leftist media if they continue on the liberal fascist road they are traveling. Tweeter had to appologize for bullying a politically incorrect British journalist who dared critize NBCs coverage of the Olympics this week. The liberal CEO’s had best back off but they won’t unless share holders force them to do it.

Any corporate officer in any company with judgment that poor should be fired for sheer incompetence.

This disgraced faggot Smith will probably land a job with Ubama’s government, just like that other disgraced faggot, former Penn State president Graham Spanier.

“I’m out of the loop on this one, 14 hour work days this week, what happened?”

Just put in “Adam Smith” in the FR search box and the whole ugly story will unfold in a series of posts that started yesterday.

Short version:

Adam Smith, O-bot extraordinaire, decided he was going to counter-protest CFA Appreciation day by driving through a CFA, order water, and harass whomever was working the window about the homophobic, hateful company they worked for.

And he was going to film the entire thing, post it on youtube and become the newest liberal internet sensation! Hooray!

--------

Except it all didn't QUITE turn out the way he planned!

LOL!

He must have been a terror to his fellow employees. I'd bet they were simply looking for an excuse and he willingly handed the company one.

While Vante may have initially been considered “guilty by association”, they have proven to be a standup company by acting as quickly as they did in their dismissal of Mr. Smith.

I would have no problem with an Avante catheter being used in me. Not that I would look forward to it... :-)

Guys like this tend to end up as controllers in lumberyards. Cheap, skilled labor but you have to watch their mouths.

What would really be nice is for the sweet young lady to offer to forgive him, and ask that he not be fired. Very publicly, of course. Can’t hide your light under a bushel!
