An Australian stockbroker named David Kiely is in hot water with his employer, Macquarie Private Wealth, after his co-worker’s live appearance on the Seven Network captured Kiely looking at racy photos of supermodel Miranda Kerr. Hey, it’s better than blogging on company time.
In addition to becoming an overnight star, the stockbroker has landed himself in hot water with his employer… Mr Kiely was still employed by the bank today, but a series of meetings with Macquarie’s human resources and senior bank executives are expected to take place this week.
The gaffe occurred when Mr Kiely opened a series of emails containing photographs of Kerr from a recent GQ shoot, while his colleague Martin Lakos was live on air with the Seven Network, discussing the Reserve Bank’s decision to keep interest rates on hold yesterday. [The Australian]
At this point in the blog post, I can either make a joke about inappropriate use of the Internet on company time — which might not be funny, and almost certainly wouldn’t be original — OR… I can use this as an excuse to post those Miranda Kerr pictures from GQ. I think you know which way I’m going here. Just make sure there isn’t a TV camera behind you before you click on ’em.
