People and Business: Tina Turner wins despite Iron Maiden's charms
Thursday 26 November 1998
It turns out that Mr Goodchild helped to set up a management consultancy called Sanctuary whose chief client is Iron Maiden. He is no longer a director, but still retains an affection for the link.
So is Mr Goodchild a head-banger himself, I ask?
"No, no, I'm much more Tina Turner."
ONE BRANCH of the Rothschild family has put Exbury Garden Nurseries up for sale, a world-famous centre in the New Forest for propagating exotic rhododendrons and azaleas
The nurseries are being sold by Edmund "Eddie" de Rothschild, second cousin to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, chairman of the eponymous investment bank NM Rothschild. Edmund's father, Lionel de Rothschild, carved out 70 acres of gardens from the New Forest after the First World War. The nurseries, however, have been so successful - attracting visitors from as far afield as Japan and the United States - that a new owner is needed to fund expansion.
So, if you fancy bidding for one of the world's best growers of camellias and pieris, get your offer in to Simon White of Deloitte & Touche in Southampton, who is handling the sale for the family.
CHARLES ALLEN, chief executive of Granada, startled analysts yesterday when he started enthusing about "soap bubbles". Was the media group about to expand into soaps and detergents, they wondered?
In fact, the broadcasting boss was referring to the practice of spinning off programmes from existing soap operas - such as the recent video of Coronation Street. Mr Allen is now pondering a full-length film of Corry, he added, for OnDigital, the channel of which Granada owns a half.
TALKING OF strange new business phrases, I noticed a number while perusing the latest edition of the Collins English Dictionary (price pounds 24.99): "Ad hocracy - management that responds to urgent problems rather than planning to avoid them." My favourite, however, is: "Garbology - the study of the contents of domestic dustbins to analyse the consumption patterns of households."
THE SECURITIES Institute has hired Paul Cattermull to be managing director of its training arm, starting next Monday. The role includes training up a lot of brokers in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Ukraine and other markets, markets which are seeking to establish equivalent professional bodies to the institute.
Mr Cattermull will leave any globetrotting, however, to his predecessor, Tim Nicholson, who continues as a consultant to the institute.
Mr Cattermull has spent 15 years in private client asset management, following the Army and business school. After a stint with Schroders, Binder Hamlyn asked him to set up an asset management business for them in 1987, quite a departure for an accountancy firm in those days. Binder sold the operation to Matheson Investment Management in 1992, and he moved to Hill Samuel. When Hill Samuel sold its private client asset business to Lloyds Private Banking this year he was left at a loose end. He knows his new chief executive Geoffrey Turner well, however - they were on the board of the Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers (Apcims) together.
