I've lost track of initials... who's JT?
John Thomas....he was there for less than a year....was meant to succeed JB. But that plan fizzled.
He was brought into succeed JB. He quickly realised the mess VA were in and started to work to address it (e.g. he brought in Economy X - ways to get $ in the door) - basically his strategy has ultimately morphed into Bain's ironically. JB didn't like this and rolled him out the door - how? - no one is sure.... Lots of heavy rumors around their relationship....
Ah right... so he was the fellow they reported as the "former exec manager..." or whatever title they gave him in the article. Didn't quite catch his name then. Thanks.
I watched the show on iView last night - Frankly the only thing I found I did not know was what Elizabeth Bryan looked like - other than that I learned nothing I was not already aware of from sources such as this thread and AFF in general.
Exactly my thoughts! Bit of a non-event. Did Caroline Jones retire?
Funny how some of the talking heads were clearly replying to on or off-camera questions, while others were just presented and allowed to just say what they wanted, unchallenged.
4 corners was easy to watch reading AFF takes a bit of time.I watched the show on iView last night - Frankly the only thing I found I did not know was what Elizabeth Bryan looked like - other than that I learned nothing I was not already aware of from sources such as this thread and AFF in general.

So, John Thomas has found a new role after the consortium he may have been linked to did not win the bid.
