Public figures – celebrities, politicians, and others who put themselves in the public eye, are fair game for the media to talk about. But I doubt that Bob Moffat ever expected his life would be an open book when he started working for IBM 30 years ago as a programmer.
Generally we know very little about the private lives of corporate executives, including those at the top.
Now, thanks to a career-fatal indiscretion, a guilty plea in the Galleon Insider Trading Scandal, and this Fortune article, I know far more about Robert Moffat, Jr. than I ever wanted to know.
Moffat is due to be sentenced at the end of July.
