Macroman: Pierce Cody v beta

The short question is why is his name back in my life ? Pierce Cody . .

The short answer is - On seeking a reference Paul Fishmann spoke briefly to fellow YPO'er Pierce Cody, PC gave a less than glowing reference - in fact he stated that I had stolen from him - a lesser reference I can't imagine.

My Position at Macro was as a Contracted Independent Consultant, at NO time was I employed by Macro.

OK - the short version out of the way, these are the facts.

  • On average I was posting invoices of $15,000 a month to Macro - A company with 8 outlets and a turnover in excess of $5,000,000 a month - Mr Cody's specious allegation is that I defrauded Macro of $118- one hundred and eighteen dollars! I had witnessed this non-payment tactic by Mr Cody to struggling Organic Suppliers - however never believed it would happen to me.
  • In September 2008, while contracted to Macro Pty Ltd - Pierce Cody via his payroll team WITHDREW $10,000 from my bank account
  • In the same month I was forced to pay - The CFO and Operations Managers refused to set up accounts for or sign cheques to purchase furniture for the fitout of Macros new Mona Vale Store - let me re state: I was clearly instructed by both the CFO and the Operations Manager that I would Have to Pay for cafe furniture out of my own pocket and be reimbursed by Macro.
  • In June 2008 Brett Blundy employed an Exit Strategist to remove himself from Macro
  • By July 2008 Mr Blundy had proceeded down this track and was intent on leaving the business.
  • In August 2008 I requested a meeting with Mr Blundy to rectify what I considered a poor decision, Mr Blundy was of the opinion that saving his friendship with the then untenable Mr Cody was more important than his business liaison. I pointed out that unfortunately the two went hand in hand - if Mr Blundy Exited Macro, Mr Cody would become insolvent, and an insolvent Mr Cody would not be a worthy buddy - the conclusion of this meeting was that Mr Blundy had no choice but to see the business through to a successful sale.
This last point is the one that holds the most grief for me . . . . .
In our lives we often make bad decisions - we often make statements we wish could be simply erased - this conversation should never have taken place.

to be continued . . . . .

Coming up: accusations that i put a HIT out on pc via the russian mafia

Friday 26th November 2010.

Due to the large number of traffic this post has created i feel it appropriate to add  a little clarity.

  • At NO TIME have I had a personal issue with Mr Cody!
  • At NO TIME have I had ANY personal interaction with Mr Cody
  • At NO TIME have I introduced Alex Brooks to Mr Cody nor suggested they interact in any way
  • My dealing with Mr Cody have been absolutely professional and aside from a discrepancy over payment - I have ALWAYS had an absolute admiration for Mr Cody and his abilities in commerce.
If Mr Cody is unfortunate enough to have become entangled in my personal affairs, my sincerest apologies, unfortunately Alex is as determined as she is demented. The problems that Alex and I experienced are unfortunate - not public - deeply personal !

I am currently 1000km away from Alex and still live in fear of her appearing in my life, i would not wish her inflicted on anyone, Mr Cody included.
