Markit: To shave and to shave not

 Markit president Kevin Gould obviously decided to do when the firm held a 24-hour shave-a-thon in March to raise funds for charity

There is nothing like leading from the top and this is what Markit president Kevin Gould obviously decided to do when the firm held a 24-hour shave-a-thon in March to raise funds for charity. Gould was one of 142 employees in 13 Markit offices worldwide that submitted to the razor and shaved their locks to raise money for the St Baldrick’s Foundation and CLIC Sargent, two charities set up to combat childhood cancer. The effort raised more than $450,000 and was also an excellent business opportunity for hat sellers in the various cities across the globe in which cold-headed employees now reside.
