People moves: Duffy joins D Square

Word reaches me that Duffy has joined high frequency trading outfit D Square, which is run by Damian Mitchell, a former colleague of mine from Midland Bank. Naturally, I was surprised that the Welsh faux-soul songstress should be moving across to the world of finance to join the company as its seventh employee, so I called up Damian, who seemed so stunned that I’d heard he refused initially to give me any further details. “Listen shag,” I explained. “It’s like torture. I’ll find out all the deets eventually, but if you make it difficult, I’ll only get pissed off. So save your finger nails, if you get my drift.”

Damian has always been a cool customer, and he refused to be intimidated, although he did confirm that a certain Ryan Duffy is joining as a programmer from another firm called Concordia. “It isn’t her (Welsh faux-soul singer) no. I am not sure she’s a programmer,” he replied.
