OFF BALANCE was delighted to note the stellar [should that be Stella?: Ed] rise of Ben Whitley, who has been appointed interim FD at Wetherspoons.
From draught beer to draft accounts, Whitley began working in one of its pubs as a shift manager, before moving into a series of audit and finance roles in head office.
A great effort, I’m sure you can all agree. It reminds OB of our own meteoric rise from abacus bead-polisher to chief head of calculator procurement.
We can only hope that such a tough, responsible, role doesn’t drive him to drink.
