Wendy’s words directly made Jose’s heart fall to the bottom of the valley.
“From now on, Jose will be exempted from the position of minister of the project department and will be temporarily replaced by deputy minister of the Ministry of Safety, Milos,” Wendy casually gave the order.
George couldn’t help but be stunned. He didn’t know much about doing business.
Jose said angrily, “Wendy, you are going too far! We are family after all, and you are so partial to an outsider…”
Wendy said icily, “Haven’t you done enough ungrateful things in the past few years? Do you want me to take out evidence and even send you to court?”
“I’ll give you a way out. Just behave yourself and don’t argue with me here. If you say half a word more, I’ll let you spend the rest of your life in jail!”
As soon as these words came out, Jose felt a chill down his spine and trembled in fear, not daring to speak again.
The staff of the project department was also dumbfounded. They had just offended George in the ward and said a lot of bad words.
Now that George had become their immediate superior, how could they get away with this in the future?
On Archie’s side, Wendy just verbally criticized him and deducted a quarterly bonus from his monthly salary.
“Now you are in charge of the project department. Just greenlight a few projects to Johnson Group and you won’t encounter any obstacles,” Wendy said lightly.
This is really giving a carrot and stick at the same time. Ms. Wendy’s methods are really brilliant…
George shook his head.
Wendy obviously wanted to use this as an excuse to completely get rid of Jose, so she didn’t greet the people of the project department at all. It was no wonder that Natalie was coveted by Jose.
Wendy’s expression was cold as she said, “Right now, the company’s financing is in dire straits. Many industries are in a difficult situation. If this continues, Porter Group and Roarclaws Group’s huge funds will gain the upper hand. Giradia Group can only go bankrupt.”
“I want to ask you, how can you help me solve this problem?”
George smiled and said, “You deal with it first. When Jade interferes, I will take action.”
Wendy was unhappy. Since George had said so, it was obvious that he could get a large sum of money to solve the problem. However, he did not want to make a move at this time, or else this would make Giradia Group suffer a certain degree of loss. However, if Giradia Group won in the end, these losses would not be much.
“I hope you do not disappoint me!” Wendy took a deep breath and said in a deep voice.
George waved his hand lightly and then left, directly looking for the deputy minister of the project department.
When the deputy minister saw him, he was trembling with fear.
George said, “I am just a temporary replacement, and I don’t know business well. In the project department, you are the one who has the final say. I need a few small projects that can make money now. They are supposed to occur on the land of Centrova. You arrange them for me.”
George took three projects from the project department. Two of them were handed over to the Johnson family, while the other one was to be given to Ranchy Group from Alder’s family.
Seeing that George really came back with the project, the Johnson family couldn’t help but be shocked.
Luisa was silent for a moment before saying, “What’s so strange about this? I think it’s just that Ms. Wendy is reasonable. Jose went going too far and insulted Giradia Group’s reputation. Ms. Wendy just punished him as a typical example.”
Hector heaved a sigh of relief and said, “No matter what, this matter was solved by Alder. Luisa, go buy some groceries and make a table of good dishes later. Let’s celebrate!”
Natalie was also relieved, she smiled at George and said, “Thank you for your hard work, I appreciate it.”
“It was nothing.” George said calmly.
Luisa also snorted, “What are you pretending for! If not for Ms. Wendy being reasonable, would you be able to handle it?”
However, that night, Luisa still made a table of good dishes to celebrate.
“These two projects should be able to make a lot of money, enough for me to make up for the deficit that I suffered in Roberts Property. We can still make enough profit this year.” Natalie said easily.
The deficit caused by the loss of investment in Roberts Property had always been used by the board of directors to attack her. With these two projects, she would soon be able to make a lot of money.
“Milos, didn’t you say that Murcol’s land would rise in value? Why don’t you tell Ms. Wendy and let her buy the contracts over from Johnson Group’s hands?” Luisa asked.
Hector was embarrassed by Luisa’s profit–seeking behavior and said to Milos, “Don’t listen to Luisa.”
George said, “It’s better to keep it. The value of this land will really rise. Keeping it in your hands is a very good move for Johnson Group.”
Luisa said angrily, “Such an ingrate! You are Natalie’s husband. First of all, you have to think about the Johnson family’s interests. Giradia Group is an outsider to you. So what if you let Ms. Wendy buy the contract in our hands? We can afford some losses. Half price is still fine!”
“Mom, don’t talk about this anymore! Through this project, we can already make up for the deficit. Let’s keep this piece of land for now. If someone buys it, we can sell it…” Natalie shook her head helplessly, she didn’t want Luisa to continue.
George smiled helplessly and didn’t say anything else.
Natalie also said that when she made enough money, she would return the money he lost to his relatives. After all, she was the one who brought up the matter of investing in Roberts Property. If there was a loss, it was natural for her to bear it.
George did not care.
The next day, she checked in around Giradia Group. In the afternoon, George headed to a helicopter airport in Mimar City.
At the airport, people were coming and going. Everyone was dressed appropriately and magnificently. Only Milos, dressed in casual clothes, seemed out of place.
They were all here to attend Angelina’s twenty-five year-old birthday banquet.
Everyone knew that Mr. Hopp’s daughter, Angelina, had suffered a blow because of her mother’s death. Over the years, she had barely left her home and had suffered from a serious mental illness. This sudden birthday banquet was obviously unusual. Therefore, many people were invited.
“Why are you here?!” Natalie, who was dressed in a red evening dress, was shocked when she saw Alder.
She did not tell George about this matter at all and was prepared to attend it alone. After all, after the incident at Giradia Group’s dinner last time, she already had lingering fears, afraid that George would cause trouble at such an occasion.
George was surprised to see Natalie, he smiled and said, “To attend Angelina’s birthday banquet, of course!”
Alder walked over in a blue dress. The downwash from the helicopter’s propeller made her hair a little messy.
She came up with a smile and said, “Natalie, Mr. Evans, you came earlier than me!”
“Hey, Natalie! Aren’t you going too far? Why don’t you buy a decent set of clothes for Mr. Evans? Aren’t you afraid that he will embarrass you?”
“If I had known that Mr. Evans didn’t have a decent suit, I would have bought one for you!”
Natalie’s pretty face suddenly turned red, and she said unhappily, “I have already bought it for him. He just doesn’t wear it himself!”
Just at this time, a helicopter stopped. It was empty, and the three directly boarded it.
