Top CEOs Receive Mistress for Christmas
Top city professionals, including newly appointed Marks and Spencer CEO Marc Bolland and Lloyd's GCE J Eric Daniels have this week received posted invites from a UK dating site, encouraging them to cheat online.
The executive employees of 60 FSTE 100 companies have been handpicked to receive free membership to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK's largest and longest-established dating site for people seeking affairs. Invitations were also sent to the Board of Directors at RBS, and Andrew Witty of Glaxo Smith Kline, amongst others.
Currently, it is estimated that over 40,000 executives and financial professionals across the UK are cheating on the site. IllicitEncounters.com have released statistics that show the average annual income on their site is £39,000 after tax, £10,000 higher than the national average, strongly suggesting that higher incomes equal a heightened desire to stray.
Adam Scott, MD of the company, explains there are already many high-earning city professionals using the website; "We have a solid reputation for discretion, and above all, this is what the big guns are looking for. These go-getters are predisposed to playing away; they have proven they are self-determined, and in their environment, affairs are rife. Men and women who strive for perfection in the professional life, are unlikely to endure anything less in other areas of their life - including their relationships."
The invites have been sent as part of an initiative by the site to even up its gender ratio. So far, 12 profiles have been upgraded using the unique code supplied to the CEOs. Further details of top professionals on the site will remain confidential, in line with site policy.
