Premature celebration

Details should never get in the way of a good party. So it’s refreshing to hear that staff at Wolff Olins partied away to celebrate their MBO the other Friday, even though it hadn’t happened yet. The party was optimistically scheduled for 6pm, recounts managing director Charles Wright (as featured above on the company’s stationery). But 6pm came and went and the all important dotted line was still unsigned. Undeterred, the team joined the celebrations, only to leave again two hours later to thrash out the last details. The deal was finally sealed at 11pm allowing the four new managers to rejoin the frolics.
