THE FORMER managing director of failed fit-out company Spectrum has set up a new firm in a bid to win its largest contract.
Brian Tripp, who founded Spectrum in 1996, is now a director of ICMS, which is registered in Maidstone, Kent.
He is understood to be in discussions with developer St George over Spectrum's £13 million Imperial Wharf scheme in Fulham, west London.
The job was due to start on site when cashflow problems forced Spectrum to call in administrator Rothman Pantall last month.
The company was wound up with the loss of nearly 80 jobs.
One source said: 'Nothing is definite yet but St George is still keen to work with Brian so hopefully something should be signed shortly.'
