I quite like that the change of ownership looks to have happened and the new owners are going about things before anything is announced. Get about making changes before it is announced and they need to front the media and the distractions around it. Get on with business. Hopefully George's statement is correct and Tony is a person of interest while they still look at new people to add to the management team. Otherwise it comes off as someone moving home and there is conveniently a job for him. The main thing is to get interviewing and get the best person.
