Michael Wolff, the eponymous co-founder who left in the early 1980s, has joined the Conrans, McColls and Lumsdens of this world, and isn’t sure how he feels about the new management using his name. “It’s a different company now,” Wolff said after plans for a Wolff Olins management buy-out were announced last week. But he is a realist when it comes to getting his name off the letterheads: “I probably haven’t got a leg to stand on,” he admits. Could we be in for a surprise? After recent fishy events Wolff has quite a track record of standing up for himself against the consultancy.
