Noth­ing Cor­nesy about this de­ci­sion

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

YOU wouldn’t imag­ine Gold­man with­out Sachs, Morgan with­out Stan­ley, JP with­out Morgan. What about Cornes with­out Sloane?

In one of the weirder cor­po­rate moves, two years ago KANE CORNES and RORY SLOANE crossed the sport­ing di­vide be­tween Ade­laide and Port Ade­laide to form a dig­i­tal ad­ver­tis­ing busi­ness known as Cornes and Sloane. The other part­ners were Cornes’ wife Lucy and Sloane’s wife Belinda. “We spent years throw­ing eggs at each other’s houses, but then we got in busi­ness,” Rory said then. “It’s good to have two peo­ple from the op­po­si­tion work­ing to­gether.”

But the Sloanes left the com­pany a month af­ter Ade­laide’s AFL grand fi­nal loss to Rich­mond, leav­ing Kane and Lucy as sole in­vestors and direc­tors of a busi­ness called Cornes and Sloane.
