Chandlee is off to run Facebook's operations in more exotic climes but departed in style at a party held at Barrio Central in Soho. David Pattison, OMD's Steve Williams, HMDG's Greg Grimmer and Maxus' Lindsay Weedon were there to say goodbye. The night ended with Barrio ordering in extra tequila to cope with Chandlee's thirst and a gatecrashing couple who promised to update their Facebook status after booking a flight to Vegas to get married. Chandlee's presence will be missed around the Soho bars.
Last week, Blake Chandlee, the US-born head of Yahoo! and then Facebook's commercial teams, left the UK as he entered it: in a flood of tequila.
