Former Marconi FD in pension payout

According to the Financial Times, the troubled telecommunications group is believed to be set to pay the benefits in addition to the £600,000 it has already paid to the former director who had expected to become chief executive this year.

The company has stressed it could do nothing about the pension pay out, though it described suggestions that Mayo could have received a benefit of £950,000 as ‘wildly inaccurate’.

Mayo was forced to resign from the telcom equipment manufacturer in the summer after the comapny issued a dire profits warning and announced thousands of job cuts.
