Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO

Employee Has Left the Company

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:

Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

Now it’s time to check out the ‘college’ he claims to be an adjunct lecturer for and see if they’ve done the same thing.

Anyone that would hire a nasty jerk like that? Naw —I don’t believe it.

Either he hadn’t worked there in a long time, or he’s STILL working there.

She was cool, and he was a total jerk.

I’ll bet that’s a company of jerks.

I also do believe he’s gay, BTW.

Excellent! I notice they said “former CFO.” Even better.

Seeing this privileged jerk harass a minimum wage fast food employee (and boast about it on the Internet) certainly could not have given the company a very positive image.

This is so cool! The power of the Internet harnessed for justice and righeousness. Not of the same magnitude as “Dan Rather Busted By The Pajama Squad”, but it’s close.

I’ll bet that douchebag is still wondering what hit him.

I hope all employers in his area remember his face and throw his job application in the waste basket.

I also hope that his hate prank is constantly in the back of his mind whenever he is with others.

They just played the video on Fox News (The Five)! Even that turd Beckel was outraged. Sometimes a jerk gets caught, and it’s especially fitting when he “opens fire, and shoots himself.”

I was on Vante's website earlier, registering my complaint against this jerk. While there, I searched around and found his name listed as CFO. I just visited the site a few minutes ago (a link to their page where one can send comments) and the page was down.

His resume, at arizona.edu is still up and lists his position with Vante as "Current". It would seem his being their 'former' CFO is a recent change.

Here’s the link to Vante’s “Management Team” webpage.

As of now, Smith is still listed. We’ll see when/if they remove him. Press release sure looked legit to me though.

His info is already off the College Website.

This is a fine day.

The hubris of this idiot got him fired. He didn’t have to post that video.

Internet Justice.

I wish I knew someone at that Chick-Fil-A to hear the buzz

Poor girl is probably traumatized. Just living her life and then thrown out into the Universe as a poster child of Chick Fil A.

Hate to see anyone lose their job.....

that being said— this guy could have easily cost that young girl her job, if she had not responded well....

he could not just let people vote and speak with their wallet and time...

he HAD to get in someone’s face, then had the poor judgement to record it, post it for the world, and then include all his personal info, dragging his company into his inability to cope with people calmly and quietly living out their values and beliefs.....

I was trying to look up info on him on another thread, and Vante's Partners/Investors link was being updated and not available when I saw about this.

Indeed: ROFLMAO

He appears also to have been fired by the University of Arizona, as his he is not listed as part of the Finance and Research faculty any more...

Interesting that CFA has come out and made a statement on bloomberg about it saying the dude is no longer at Vante.
