What is happening at Kathmandu?

Kathmandu clothing’s general manager of retail resigned yesterday.

He leaves the company in 2 days. That’s right. Two whole days.

His responsibilities will be taken up by other team members until someone new has been found.

This is very odd, and certainly not a normal practice for nationwide/trans-tasman listed companies to have senior staff take off on 2 days notice, and without anyone prepared to step in to the role.

Were Xmas sales even worse than expected? Is something else afoot? Trouble at Aussie Mill?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
