While top employers have unified against executive-suite misogyny, Thornburg Investment Management, Inc. and CEO Jason Brady are doubling down on it. In 25 years as a Mutual Fund professional, Troy Statczar never received a single write-up or disciplinary action until he challenged CEO Brady having an affair with a direct subordinate while rapidly promoting her within Thornburg.  After Statczar spoke out, Thornburg and Brady fired him.

On November 12, 2019, we filed Troy Statczar v. Thornburg Investment Management, Inc., Jason Brady, Nimish Bhatt, Dana Jones, and Garrett Thornburg, an action under the New Mexico Human Rights Act (“NMHRA”), in the County of Santa Fe, First Judicial District Court. View the Complaint here. Persons with information may e-mail contact data to trent@trentahowell.com.

Anyone giving truthful testimony is protected by law. NMHRA subsection 7(I)(2) forbids “any form of threats, reprisal or discrimination against any person who has opposed any unlawful discriminatory practice or has filed a complaint, testified or participated in any proceeding under the Human Rights Act.” NMHRA, NMSA § 28-1-7(I)(2).
