A wave of new appointments at senior management level among bakery companies in the UK is set to prompt a radical change in their behaviour, says Plimsoll.A new report from the industry analyst says there have been 722 new appointments at director level among the top 980 companies in the last 18 months, in an industry with 2,153 directors in total.This new blood will change the industry, says senior analyst David Pattison: “Companies don’t do business with companies – people do business with people. But people are changing and firms will lose business simply because they took a customer, competitor or supplier for granted based on an older management style.”Plimsoll investigated each company’s financial performance and found the challenge for 180 of the new appointments was to keep the company afloat. For 542 others it was to improve performance.Pattison said: “The reasons for the appointments are varied. Some have been taken on to find a buyer for the company, while others have been appointed to see through a management buyout. A quarter of directors are over the age of 60 and we will see more evolution in the near future.”The report says the average director’s salary in the baking industry was £70,566 last year.To obtain a £50 discount on the £300 report quote the code PR02 online at: [http://www.plimsoll.co.uk]

Â©Roslyn Budd — www.buddphotography.com.auTHE Townsville housing market will only marginally benefit from the Federal Government’s measures designed to help first home buyers get into the market. Real Estate Institute of Queensland Townsville Zone Chair, Damien Keyes said broadly speaking, the Queensland housing market would not be significantly impacted from announcements in the Federal Budget which was designed to tackle problems that are faced by Sydney and Melbourne markets.“The REIQ has been lobbying the State Government extensively to get the first-home buyer grant broadened to include established homes,” he said. “History tells us that this type of support is popular with young first-home buyers who are anxious to get started on their home ownership journey immediately. “We think that the Federal Government’s super-saver scheme may be significantly less popular than the grant, largely because wages growth has been flat and young first-home buyers don’t have much in their superannuation account yet. It’s a slow-burn approach to getting the deposit together for a home. “However, the super-saver scheme will be more beneficial to those in the regions than their big-city counterparts where first-home buyers need a 20 per cent deposit of more than $140,000 to get into the market and buy a property worth $700,000.“The $30,000 from their superannuation won’t go very far in those markets.”Mr Keyes said one of the most disappointing aspects of the Federal Budget was Treasurer Scott Morrison’s announcement to limit investor activity.

It has just been made official how British heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora will meet in a rematch of their 2011 clash on July 26th. The rematch, which will be an official WBO final eliminator, will take place in Manchester at The Phones 4U Arena.Unbeaten 25-year-old Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) outpointed 30-year-old Chisora (20-4, 13 KOs) three years ago, but Chisora was carrying excess weight and “Del Boy” has promised he will be in tip-top shape this time. Both men want a shot at Wladimir Klitschko and a win on July 26th will take either man a big step closer to that.Fury-Chisora II has been dubbed “The Fight for The Right.” BoxNation TV channel in the UK will show the fight live
