While everyone is trying to get their mouths round GGT and BST
BDDP’s new name (including the receptionists), the happy campers at the
newly merged agency have other things on their minds.
While certain people have fled to the States having survived (yet
another) merger, others milled around the Dean Street offices murmuring
that the BST lot looked rather too businesslike and serious for the lads
One person who would like to be businesslike is John Sharkey, joint
chairman of the new operation. Sadly, we hear, he can’t. Despite
Sharkey’s, and fellow joint chairman Paul Bainsfair’s, beloved white
formica desks surviving the short move from Soho Square, something else
Sharkey’s treasured filing cabinet containing some incredibly important
documents went AWOL. Rumours that the cabinet contained all the money he
made from the deal are as yet unconfirmed.
