Standing start for Sky’s Andrew Griffith

When, each morning at 7.30am, Andrew Griffith arrives at his office at Sky’s impressive new central block in Osterley – the one in the background on Sky News – he does not slump in his chair. He does not have a chair.

This is not a case of fanatical hot-­desking, although he is one of the few senior execs to have his own defined space in the new building. Sky’s 45-year-old chief operating and chief financial officer prefers to stand: better energy levels, shorter conversations.
