If you don’t want to buy my bridge would you buy what Toby Marchant has to say in
“We can’t shrink our way to prosperity”
just published in Print21 magazine? Check it out here.
If you’re too busy to read Toby Marchant’s verbosity, a massive 1,800 words, a couple of choice extracts will give you an indication of where Toby is coming from.
It’s the blame game again.
“The organisation simply has too many legacy burdens …”
Agreed, and you still deny any responsibility whatsoever after being:
- MD of Robert Horne Group in the UK;
- Regional President for PaperlinX UK, Ireland and South Africa (Europe Region 2);
- Chief Executive Officer of PaperlinX Europe
(Europe Regions 1 and 2), and
- MD and Chief Executive Officer of PaperlinX Limited
8½ years, since November 2003, in positions of responsibility and it’s all still someone else’s fault. There we disagree.
“There are things on the fringes that aren’t helpful at all like blogs, which are serious distractions.”
Toby, I make this promise to you; while you’re there suX will be your shadow.
“There are various blogs out there and I wouldn’t even want to mention them by name [the name is suX, it rhymes with ducks which are what PaperlinX keeps scoring] but there are various people making commentary on PaperlinX that really doesn’t help. Because that genuinely is an attempt to destabilise the organisation and I can only assume that the people involved in that are looking to see the company destroyed …”
Toby, that is a stupid statement and patently untrue which you know full well. My turn to demand a retraction and apology.
I have more dollars invested in PaperlinX than all of the board combined. Fact - or would you care to revisit directors’ shareholdings and alleged black out periods yet again.
“I don’t believe you’d find Price would be taking a radically different view from ours, in fact it would be the same story.”
Toby, believe that and you’re the bridge buyer.
Coming soon ... I've got another bridge for sale, even better than this one and putting lipstick on a pig.
