The aggressive and bullying behaviour of Comair was simply appallingsays Metaco Founder and MD, Barbara Walsh.
I understand that strategies can change when new management takes over. I would have been open to an amicable exit from Comair, but they were not keen to any discussion. Instead, they chose an unethical and confrontational approach.
We consider these actions to be in bad faithsays Barbara Walsh,
and the process has certainly taken its toll. In the course of one year, our business moved from being a successful world-class consultancy to conveniently being declared insolvent by the new owners. Metaco has never been insolvent and neither did our Board believe we were insolvent.
This corporate hostility is not congruent with Comair's stated values of integrity, strong ethics and good corporate governance. As a business, Metaco is tiny in comparison with Comair. However our strong and ethical guiding principles inform us as a business, and as people, on our way forward. In spite of the personal risk, I will oppose this strongly as a moral issue. It is our intention that, in standing up against victimisation, we can demonstrate that it is possible to take on giants. I hope our story will inspire others with the courage to do the samesays Walsh.
