Mark Lonngren gravy train grinds to a haltPosted: March 15, 2018
The gravy train that Mark Lonngren has been on for years is about to stop dead in it’s tracks. Lonngren will be leaving the club’s employ very soon. Obviously not soon enough for those poor souls who have to deal with this imbecile every day.
When you think about it there have been some very strange staffing appointments at City Tatts. Take Trevelyan Bale, a club chef on $250,000 a year. What about Jan Ellks, a secretary on $130,000 a year.? As strange as these appointments were, at least Bale was a qualified chef. And Ellks was (probably) a qualified pen-pusher.
But Lonngren? Did he have any qualifications? For anything?
And while we are on the subject, does anyone know what he did at City Tatts? In recent years he was claimed to be a maintenance manager. But the rest of the maintenance team were never quite sure about this. Before that he was described as an interior designer.
What is more strange is that this bluffer was made a permanent employee only last year, after years of being a “contractor”. Now why would a contractor be made a permanent employee only to be punted out a year later? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to leave him as a contractor?
Is Marcelo Veloz that confused? Possibly, but somehow we suspect there is more to the story.
We think this is a case for The Ferret.
