Cleared balance reinstated.


Recommended Posts

My guess is that the new Board is thinking about how hard it can push and how quickly. It will quite likely want to make a large distance between the old 'photographers' friend' model towards an explicitly crowd-sourcing one ASAP.  

 

And in the process of making the new wine grapes get crushed. Most of us are all withering anyway!😁

 

I hadn't realised that James West was no longer on the Board.

 

And I didn't know the name of the new CEO until I looked on Companies House.

 

How many of you know who it is?

I see directors and secretary, but not CEO.

A whole day without explanation now. Wonder how the emails will be answered.

I quoted both facts on several previous posts.

Bit like stock photography - some research can prove useful.

Yes, thanks for the information. I assume that he stayed on the Board for the first year following the PA takeover.

When moving over to a new internal system, some older dormant code was mistakenly reinstated (many, many years ago we had some commission models with storage fees). 

 

This was quickly spotted, fixed and any fees were refunded. In total this affected no more than 160 contributors. 

 

Apologies to any of you who were left confused by this.

 

Best,

Cheers geogphotos - when the acquisition went through it was announced that James West would be staying on as a director. (I can't remember if a year or was stated)

 

Directors staying on would be a  fairly common practice I would imagine until the new owners become acquainted with the business.

Once they do that then the director will leave/may leave or remain because he/she adds value to the board/business.

 

"M&A" (Mergers and acquisitions) bring different outlooks, strategies and cultures together which then permeate down the business and we now see changes coming through PA/Alamy. Time and history will tell how the ship fares in the global stock world......

Merely "dormant" then. Hmm.

 

Really no need to take things out of context in this way.

 

Old code, mistakenly reused, quickly removed and corrected.

 

Again, we're sorry for the confusion this has caused.
