CEO Grenville Turner and the reputation of Countrywide Plc

By John Donovan

It is said that Grenville Turner (right) the Group Chief Executive of Countrywide Plc, has a reputation for turning around businesses operating in hard times.

He is, or should be, fully aware of current matters relating to Carsons Estate Agency, a subsidiary of Countrywide, which could jeopardize his track record by further damaging the reputation of Countrywide for integrity and competence.

Carsons has got into unholy mess involving a man they describe as a con-artist.

10 March 2011 by Jeff Hecht

Climate change could take the US navy into treacherous waters. It will have to raise its game in a thawing Arctic and prepare coastal bases to cope with rising sea levels, concludes a review carried out for the navy by the National Research Council (NRC).

The US Congress may still question the science of climate change, but the Pentagon already thinks a changing climate will be a significant influence on the future security environment. It said as much in last year’s Quadrennial Defence Review Report. read more

Energy giant Shell has applied for federal government approval for 60 days’ exploration drilling in an area about 50km west of the Ningaloo marine park’s boundary.
