Telstra's former PR chief, the pugilistic Phil Burgess, has come out on Facebook as a Harley Davidson rough rider.
There’s a grand tradition of Australian telecommunications executives riding Harley Davidsons. APC has seen photos of Ericsson Australia chief Sam Saba on his, for example — looking hardcore.
We knew that former Telstra group managing director of public policy and communications Phil Burgess — one of former CEO Sol Trujillo’s team of ‘amigos’ — had taken a trip with his son on Harleys during a US spring break. But we didn’t have the evidence, until now.
Why he's wearing a tuxedo over a Harley Davidson emblem t-shirt, we're not too sure.
