What to name your kid

After coming across a strangely large amount of people named “David Clarke” in the newspapers, I did a bit of poking around and discovered that the name is attributed to various people in senior positions in the Australian corporate/political world. And as far as I can tell, they were all different people. David Clarke is:

  • the CEO and Managing Director of private equity firm Allco Finance Group
  • the Non-executive Chairman of Macquarie Bank
  • the CEO and an Executive director of Rinker (before Cemex bought it)
  • the Managing Director of Webjet (which is trying to buy out travel.com.au)
  • a member of the NSW legislative council

Mr and Mrs Clarke, you now know what to call your kid if you have big plans for him.
