Ginger hair and promotion

OK, I have noticed that in 2 large organisations I have worked in there have been very senior men with ginger hair. Both have recruited and promoted highly disproportionate numbers of ginger headed people.

Has anyone else noticed this as a trend?
I am not going to say what colour my own hair is BTW!

Er, no!

Never had ginger line managers and never recruited anyone with ginger hair when I was a manager (not that I can remember)

Do you live in Scotland/Ireland?????

I am ginger-haired and was a director by the age of 35.

Hated it (the job, not the hair!)!

But I've never had any ginger managers or staff.

<nice to see a +ve ginger story. I saw the header and thought, 'oh no, another ginger-basher', but how wrong I am - thanks!> grin
