Mansfield will therefore no doubt be interested to hear about Parry's new book, entitled The Role of the CEO.
It's full of salient advice. Parry believes that the challenge for chief executives "is the creation of sustainable, long-term value, not just bumping up short-term earnings and share prices".
Everyone here no doubt echoes that sentiment. And I'm sure Parry will join us in congratulating Mansfield for defending Capital's brand values by opposing a sell-off to the Americans.
