It was a seductive offer. Joint md-ship of leading regional consultancy,
Communique and an office just a few miles from home. But for Greenwood
Tighe MD Brian Beech one formidable obstacle lay between him and the
offer from Communique’s chief Paul Carroll: Brian supports Manchester
United and Paul supports Leeds.
It was a ‘major stumbling block,’ says Beech. ‘Paul is as obsessive
about Leeds as I am about Man United.’
Beech eventually overcame his misgivings and plans to arrive at his new
office armed with United paraphenalia.
But he adds: ‘Both teams are still in the Cup and if they both get to
Wembley, separate offices could be in order.’
