  • Confirms what everybody in the market has been saying - the set is finding it hard to maintain its position with others catching up and overtaking it in terms of reputation. It still has the numbers, but that isnt the sole selling point it once was: a lot of the best work is going to other smaller sets with stellar people and less double booking.

  • Hilarious, is somebody in this forum trying to suggest that an insolvency clerk departing back to his former world will effect Keating's plans for global domination..... I think not.

  • What KC must not do in these circumstances is even contemplate the appointment of a chief executive drawn from outside the clerking fraternity. To do so would seriously undermine efforts to consolidate their market leading position in the construction sector and obliterate any prospect of broadening their expertise to other commercial disciplines. Merely look north to see what can happen when less than ideally equipped individuals are brought in to navigate sets through choppy waters.

    KC can, and I am sure will, bounce back from this. They just need to ensure that they retain the right man or woman for the job. A final word of warning, though. They cannot expect to reposition their business towards other revenue streams in the short term. To use the aged cliché, Rome was not built in a day.

  • Dr E.S. Blofeld - you are deluded if you think (a) that the departure of Paul Cooklin will not have an effect on the fortunes of Keating Chambers and; (b) that Keating Chambers is within a million light years of construction (or other) global domination.
