Bloomberg – Nomos Capital Partners Ltd. founder Mark Lowe said he didn’t take escorts on business trips and didn’t hire a hit-man to kill a former employee who is suing him for sexual discrimination.
Lowe testified yesterday that he “took exception” to the claims by Jordan Wimmer, who is suing the hedge-fund boss for 4 million pounds ($6.7 million). Lowe told a London employment tribunal that he took girlfriends on trips, not escorts. He admitted to calling Wimmer a “dumb blonde” in front of colleagues, and said he stopped after she complained. Lowe later sent a joke to his staff about a blonde woman who couldn’t tell the difference between corn flakes and a jigsaw puzzle.
