Friday the Thirteenth proved unlucky for a top Westcoast employee when he was sacked after hitting an Action Computer Supplies member of staff on the nose at a company function. The nose was not, apparently, broken. David Gully, the Westcoast account manager responsible for Action, lost his job on the fated day after the fracas at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel. Sources close to Westcoast management said Gully hit the Action product manager on the nose in an unprovoked attack in the early hours of Friday morning. Westcoast was Action’s guest at the event, held annually as a thank you to suppliers and to mark the mail-order reseller’s year-end. But the events which followed at the Heathrow hotel ended Gully’s three to four year career at the distributor and he was told to leave on 13 November. Duncan Wilkes, Action chief operations officer, confirmed a nose was hit. He said: "We’re shocked at the incident, and appreciate the action taken by Westcoast. It is obviously an issue for them to deal with, not us." ®
