If there was anyone sceptical about the triumphant return to the black for CMC Markets and its plans for a £1bn float in the next few months, CEO and founder Peter Cruddas sent them a thinly veiled message on Saturday night.
The 25th anniversary bash for CMC at Grosvenor House Hotel saw employees and their partners have a boogie alongside Motown superstar Diana Ross.
Flown in by Cruddas, Diana proceeded to sing a number of classic hits.
“It has been a fantastic achievement and there is still more to come,” said Cruddas. “I have always been a fan of Motown, and I wanted to organise something special for the 25th anniversary. Introducing Diana Ross to lead the celebrations was amazing and something I hope everyone at CMC Markets will always remember.” And would-be investors, we presume.
