It’s not always good news when your private equity backers descend on your offices at short notice…and it doesn’t always bode well when the “party” includes the worldwide CEO. Of course, nothing says “this is the good kind of party” like a silly hat, and the visit was received with extremely good humour, even if Apax was demanding money…

The Apax team had brought with them a crate of sandwiches, which they were looking to flog to the excited and hungry denizens of IE Consulting towers and our cohorts at Unquote” for the benefit of Great Ormond Street Hospital and the poorly lads and lasses it serves.

Well done Apax for putting in some personal effort to raise money for such a good cause. Not so well done on the quality of the sandwiches…I’m looking forward to Bridgepoint trying the same thing…
