Hague had been charged by authorities after the emergence of an July 2014 surveillance video from a Vancouver hotel that showed him tormenting a 5-month-old Doberman pinscher named Sade in an elevator.
"In my case, it was less than a minute in Vancouver two years ago," Hague said.
"I made a dreadful mistake one night, but I believe it has not defined me, and I think I have the potential to do good." Hague said he was excited to identify an opportunity to invest in Froozer.
"Over a twenty-five-year period of leading global public and private companies, he has established himself as an innovative thinker in the international business world." Froozer also cited the "significant amount of time and energy" Hague devotes to nonprofit charitable work and has helped raise more than 0 million over the past few years.
"This mirrors our corporate philosophy and was an important consideration for bringing Des on board, as opposed to an isolated, out-of-character incidence from the past," Froozer said.
"In addition, we firmly believe that everyone deserves a second chance." Elevator video captures CEO kicking small dog The CEO of a catering company based in Stamford, Conn., was caught on surveillance video kicking a small dog in a Vancouver hotel elevator.
