Face-aches

While it’s true that Tulkinghorn is a fan of Photoshop, which has been deployed to best effect on these pages, sometimes photos can speak for themselves.

These beauties found their way into Tulkinghorn’s in-tray this week courtesy of Travers Smith head of corporate finance Spencer Summerfield, to whom Tulkinghorn doffs his hat.

A true master of his art, surely.

The photos accompanied a speech by Summerfield at a recent Travers corporate away-day, in which the skills of the private equity team were lauded.

And what better way to illustrate the team’s prowess than by superimposing their faces on the Spice Girls? No, Tulkinghorn couldn’t think of a better choice either.

No confirmation as yet if the boys really, really, really want to zig-a-zig-ah, but from top left, meet Phil ‘Scary’ Sanderson, David ‘Baby’ Innes, Edmund ‘Sporty’ Reed, Ian ‘Posh’ Shawyer and Paul ‘Ginger’ Dolman.

A true Svengali, Summerfield also worked his magic on head of corporate Chris ‘Marilyn” Hale. Tulkinghorn is most impressed with Hale’s legs.
