restoration hardware ceo gary friedman being investigated by board of directors
Original review posted by user Jul 14, 2012
attached is an audio recording of messages left on the telephone of eva vaughan, a 26 yr old employee of restoration hardware, by gary friedman your CEO.
the board of directors of restoration hardware has hired a major law firm to fully investigate the sexual relationship between eva and gary,
eva was hired by gary friedman after meeting him under social circumstances. eva was hired and her contract was for a salary of 75k per year, she moved across the country to take this job. after approximately 3 weeks on the job gary asked eva how her apartment hunting was going, eva informed him it was taking a bit longer than she anticipated as she did not realize how expensive rent's were in san francisco, gary then asked eva what her salary was, eva replied 75k per year.
gary told eva to immediately go to the person who handles payroll and tell them "gary friedman asked me to inform you to raise my salary to 85k dollars per year, if you have any questions call him". this was done by gary without the knowledge of eva's direct bosses jennifer white and gary spain.
eva's work experience prior to joining restoration hardware, was 3 years as an asst designer of children's CLOTHING at ralph lauren, with a salary of 37k dollars per year, she had no experience at all in the furniture or retail business, yet she was hired by gary for a mid level job in the furniture business.
were there not any existing qualified employees in the restoration hardware organization to fill this position, or could he not have recruited any number of the many talented and experienced furniture industry professionals that are available and looking for work in this challenging job market?
gary has been engaged in a sexual relationship with eva for a very long part of her employment at restoration hardware, as this recording will demonstrate.
the story goes much deeper, i suggest you ask gary friedman or eva vaughan about what ended up happening to eva as a result of eva breaking a date they had planned for a saturday with gary's twins, the outcome was minuets away from a tragedy.
this message is to inform restoration hardware employees of the ethics of their ceo and a warning that gary is willing to abuse his power and put female employees in the uncomfortable position where they have to say yes or no to their bosses sexual advances, neither choice is good.
you decide if gary is a sexual predator, or if his behavior is acceptable.
