Senior executive at FTSE 250 engineering firm wins £35,000 age discrimination payout 


A senior executive at a FTSE 250 firm who was told by his younger boss he was an ‘old fossil’ has won £35,000 in an age discrimination case.

Glenn Cowie was sacked and replaced with a younger woman following the implementation of a new policy that meant the company was encouraged not to hire people over 45.

The £300,000-a-year senior manager was 58 when he was told he would be dismissed from his role as a divisional president at global engineering company Vesuvius after almost 40 years.

The sacking came just 18 months after CEO Patrick Andre called him an ‘old fossil’ in the middle of a meeting with other executives, an employment tribunal heard.
