Bianca Goodson – the former CEO of Trillian Management Consulting (TMC) – last month blew the lid on how Trillian earned lucrative consulting fees by allegedly facilitating access to top officials.
Goodson made an offer to her new employer – payroll software company Sage – that she would go if they had any concerns about her whistle-blowing.
Sage wasted no time accepting her offer to leave.
Anti-corruption campaigner Magda Wierzycka – CEO of Sygnia Asset Management – has hired Goodson and called Sage out on the circumstances around the supposed resignation.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Wierzycka.
