What a strange comment, again clearly like Chris Stone? So you believe that Cotton bought a company on his own with no consultation, no reference to the Board and no discussion with the investors? I worked on plenty of NCC stuff and all the way through every body was on the journey and agreement was reached throughout. I know because I was there the diligence was massive even on the smallest deals. The Board , the ops board, the assurance division, finance, legal, Deloitte, Eversheds and the investors everybody was kept fully up to date on all the discussions and were part of the buying decision, which is as it should be. I think you are the one who dont know how a Board or a company works, which further makes me think you are Chris Stone who only can slag people off, I suggest you follow your name and crawl back under your Stone, you're not welcome at NCC and you are ruining good peoples livelihoods.

You are funny or mad, you really think that I am Stone. So, you say you read comments like this from Stone. Where? as I can’t recall any written information in the public domain! It is ok for you to blame the former NEDS, current CEO, CFO, Chairman and Escrow MD, but won’t hear a bad word about the former CEO. Buying Fox for €133k was clearly a good decision by Cotton when they only made £1.3m in the first six months of ownership. By the way, maybe you don’t know about how a PLC Board works, but the CEO usually has a big say in the recruitment of the CFO.

Because you are Chris Stone, your comments are like those I have read and my friends have heard directly from you. You only seem to want to blame an individual and most know the real truth. NCC was a great place because of the people and your views of blame has resulted in lots of them leaving. Brian Tenner would have been recruited by the Board I would have thought? I assume you mean the Board has questions to answer, I am really not sure which? You would be better reading what people think of you rather than creating a blame culture. Very sad!

Why do you say I sound like Chris Stone, because I criticised Cotton. Do you not agree that Cotton also has a lot to answer for. He did recruit Tenner, who you strongly criticise below. He also oversaw a number of profit warnings which led to the share price dropping from £3.5 plus to below £1. Don't get me wrong Cotton clearly built a strong business over a long period of time, it is just that he lost his way at the end.

You sound like Chris Stone? I am an ex long serving employee and shareholder who has lots of friends at NCC...although there’s less by the day due to the way the business is being run.

YNWA1 - You seem to have good intel about Tenner. Looks from the historical announcements that Cotton recruited him, must not have done his homework if he has a history of this. Anyway still onwards and upwards, CEO can now recruit his own man, lets hope he does his homework!

Shows what a major impression the new CEO has made on me, I note he is called Palser, not Paisner as I referred to him in post below!

Interesting ynwa1. Without knowing how he performed in the business and going solely on public interaction I am not surprised Tenner is disgruntled. In his public appearances he came over as pragmatic and grounded. Paisner the new CEO comes over as clueless and devoid of gravitas or vision. So not surprising if Tenner was hacked off by not getting CEO job when he sees what appointment was made.

It’s come out apparently Tenner had a massive row, resigned and refused to work his notice as he didn’t get the top job. Which he wasn’t any good at. He agreed to join an AIM company as a CFO before he quit. He leaves a total mess in finance all temps and people with a few month experience. He’s done the same before at one of his other places I’m led to believe. Class act.

I think in the case of Tenner leaving it is possibly less of a red flag than normally when a CFO leaves. He came in and within a month was the interim CEO. He would have been the man in charge for eight months and all he relationships would have been shaped by his interim role. He then does not get the job and would feel that he is demoted to CFO. Also someone new comes in and starts calling the shots. Overall very difficult position to be in and I am not surprised that he wants to leave. As for timing, leaving after the results makes sense. What remains more important to me is the results which the company says are in line with expectations. I am not as negative as some of the posts on this site.

Just to chip in, I've never actually done business with NCC but have had reason to talk to them reasonably regularly (common clients and some possible projects). My key contact has changed twice in the past 12 months, and the team I'm dealing with has undergone a reasonably significant change in personnel. There are still some very solid people there, but it's clear there has been some internal disruption. I've held the shares throughout for a variety of reasons (largely because I think the core business is relatively solid and NCC are significant players in a number of areas). Obviously having the C-suite in flux is not great, and a significant investment risk if they can't sort it out and bring a team on with some experience and nouse. But, my feeling from the last conversation I had with them was that things on day-to-day basis were settling. A situation to keep an eye on.

Sorry richjp I am not disgruntled, I left with a good send off and have many happy memories of a really good company that id been part of. I was there for many years and have many friends still there (just). It was a great place to work. The place has changed for the worse so the good people and long servers are leaving as they think those who are running the place do not know what they are doing other than for themselves. I am a shareholder as I paid in many years of save as you earn schemes, like nearly all employees did as they had a belief in the company. So I am not disgruntled, I'm saddened at what has happened and at the impact it has on my one investment

Maybe, and I am not one of those, but a CFO quitting is a red flag - and the share price invariably falls after announcement. NCC is no exception to this rule. There is no smoke without fire and the real life boardroom incompetence and subsequent shake ups at NCC are all long since in the public domain. The question is whether we have seen the last of it - on last week's evidence obviously not. It takes a very special Board of Directors to make such a mess of a company in the hottest of hot industries. How such people get employed in the first place at such a senior level is beyond me. You could put a bunch of A level Business Studies students in their place and they would make a far better job of it.

I always view the views of disgruntled former employees of any company with a large pinch of salt. There may be something in what they say but they do often go way over the top and exaggerate.

I think most people want it to be sold certainly my friends do and were talking about it over the weekend. Their view is the current directors and board don't understand people businesses and have no real business knowledge, they are just paying consultants fortunes to invent jargon and worse ideas than existed before. There is a battle of ego's and self interest between Chairman, CFO, escrow MD its awful along with a CEO who has no idea what to do. In the past we all worked really hard together, people got looked after very well and stayed for years and years, now they all just want to leave.

As an ex employee I’m hearing many stories. It’s a shame to see a business that once had large swathes of its key employee base with large amounts of tenure churn staff in a way it’s never seen before.

2lbI heard the same from a reliable source when he was appointed. One of the reasons I sold out this week as I felt it was time to bank the profit. Still I bet NCC will become a TO target at some point.

Sadly the Board and Senior Management here no longer know how to steer the ship and as a result it is floundering in a buoyant market. They are rightly avoiding any further acquisitions as the chaos of the previous M&A splurge still needs to settle Very very strange appointment as CEO - a bloke who not all that many years ago was just your standard BDM in the field. Chairman is a total loon with no clue about the nuts and bolts of how NCC works. Agree with the comment that previous NEDs should be held accountable for lack of decent governance and dodgy new appointments.

I only know what my friends say, that hes invisible, doesn't seem to know what to do to head up a business such NCC. The company was a great place to be and was a really good place to be which was some of why why it was so successful, we can only hope that something happens to return it to the days before I moved but it is unlikely with the people who are left there. Its noticeable that Tenner wouldn't even work his notice like all other finance people always did. No class. Im surprised more of the current staff haven't commented on the board as plenty still have shares and are so fed up with them.

That sounds very sad and depressingI knew a number of the previous Board socially and from other businesses, and although RC could be a bit flash, Paul Mitchell and Felicity Brandwood were good people. Her husband is a very good commercial lawyer too.I will see what the results bring and try and read between the lines to decide what I do with my shares. It's such a vibrant market you have to think that will drag this business forward irrespective of what appear to be sub par managers now in place.Interesting you don't mention the current CEO.....

I worked in the UK Head office for a number of years. I am a shareholder from the SAYE schemes over all the years I was there and never sold, its my only investment. I know many people there in Escrow, Finance, IT and legal, but the long servers and talent all are leaving. According to my friends Tenner simply killed the culture with Board and Stone made it even worse with his ego and obnoxious way about him. Who ever recruited him in to a people business clearly doesn't understand what NCC is about. Calling previous management is simply unprofessional and shows the low quality of him, especially as he has done nothing. Staff just can't believe what he comes out with. The old team back to when there was Paul E and Felicity turned the Company in to something and it could be again but not with him. He and Tenner should respect that the majority of the senior and best people backed that team 100% and do not back them. Shame, I will probably sell when the results are out.
