Managing more growth means managing with less managers.

The reason for the departure of Nick Stimpson from Haymarket, is not explained in this report from Haymarket owned Brand Republic, but I loved Martin Durhams Orwellian doublethink in his quote explaining the reorganisation that follows,

"Martin Durham, chairman and managing director of HBM, said: "These changes enable us to streamline the business and increase our operating efficiencies across a wider portfolio of products, and I am confident in the growth opportunities this new operating model will provide us."

Which means:
"We are cutting our management team by not replacing one of our most senior and experienced executives. This reduction in our management knowledge and resource is exactly the extra boost we need to accelerate our efforts to grow."

I am sure that must make sense to someone.

War is peace. Freedom is slavery.
