Someone from Giradia Group came in, and it was Nigel Wilson, the vice manager of the project department.
As soon as Nigel came in, he greeted Old Mr. Johnson warmly with a wild smile.
“Mr. Wilson, I’m really sorry. We…” Old Mr. Johnson was ready to take the initiative to confess that Alder forged the contract by using the name of Giradia Group.
Before he finished speaking, Nigel smiled and said, “Old Mr. Johnson, we came here to wish you a happy birthday!”
Everyone in the Johnson family thought Nigel must have come on purpose. Ludwig would try peaceful means before resorting to force.
“Hahaha. Thank you…” Old Mr. Johnson laughed awkwardly but was getting more panicked.
Nigel took out the gift box and gave it to Old Mr. Johnson, he then said, “This is sent by the staff in our project department and our manager. Wish you a whole world of happiness.”
“Please say thank you to Manager Ward for me…” Old Mr. Johnson took the gift and said politely.
“Manager Ward?” Nigel was slightly taken aback, “Ludwig has been dismissed from Ms. Wendy…”
“Huh? So the manager of the project department now…” Old Mr. Johnson was stunned, he didn’t expect Jose had been dismissed.
Nigel said, “Mr. Evans hasn’t told you? Ludwig is the manager of our department now.”
As soon as he finished, all the relatives of the Johnson family were dumbfounded. Even Natalie turned her head and looked at Alder in shock.
When did he kick Jose out and replace him?
She was doubting in her mind.
Nigel wanted to take this chance to ingratiate his new superior. It was widely spread in the company that Alder helped Wendy secure the Centnova’s land, so Wendy valued him very much. Otherwise, as an old employee of the group, Nigel would never have cared about a newcomer.
“Manager Evans, you’re here too!” Nigel saw Alder after speaking, he stepped forward and shook hands with him.
“Mr. Wilson,” Alder said calmly, “Why are you here?”
“It’s Old Mr. Johnson’s birthday. Our colleagues urged me to come here on their behalf and send a birthday gift!” Nigel said with a smile.
Alder said, “Giradia Group had a lot of work to do recently. I can’t do much for the group. I hope you can work harder on this… Thank you for coming today.”
“But Mr. Wilson, I shall remind you to focus more on your work. Don’t waste your time picking a gift. Thank you. You can go back now.”
Nigel nodded immediately, he said, “Yes, it won’t happen again! We’ll go back to work. Excuse us…”
“George, shouldn’t we invite Mr. Wilson for dinner?!” Old Mr. Johnson coughed and said in a deep voice.
“No, thank you. We got a lot of things to do in the group,” Nigel hurriedly said. Ludwig waved his hand and left directly.
After Nigel left, everyone was silent and looked at Alder.
Hector laughed proudly, he said, “I knew It! Alder is very capable. Just like his father! George, you’re really something!”
“You haven’t been here for so long. How did you become the manager of the project department?”
“You should tell us earlier. We would celebrate it for you.”
Alder said, “It’s just a temporary post. I don’t know much about the business. Mr. Wilson is responsible for the main work.”
“So what? He’s still working under Wendy.”
“Yeah. It’s not worth showing off. It’s just a normal job. I guess his annual salary might be around 200 grand, 400 grand at most with the bonus.”
“How can he compare to Mr. Sanchez who will take over the family business? He’s working under other people and will be kicked out some day!”
Among the crowd, there were some jealous words, but they were echoed by most people.
They were the people who shot you down before you even stood up. Especially when Alder who was always looked down upon by them suddenly gained great power, they would become jealous and viciously slander him.
Old Mr. Johnson coughed to cover his embarrassment. Ludwig didn’t expect the thing had a big twist at the end. Since Alder was in charge of the project, the contract that he tore up should be effective as he had signed his name. Johnson Group would immediately own a project worth 24 million?!
“George, I was too impulsive and said something unpleasant!”
“Hope you won’t take it to heart… I’m too anxious! If I knew you had such an achievement, I wouldn’t have said these things. Why didn’t you tell us?” Old Mr. Johnson stepped forward, he patted Alder on the shoulder and said with a smile.
Alder shrugged. Ludwig thought since no one believed him, why bother to say?
Zavier also looked embarrassed. Compared with 24 million, his 2 million projects seemed so meager. After all, he couldn’t provide such a large project as Alder.
As Old Mr. Johnson’s attitude was kind now, Alder didn’t say anything else. Ludwig had worked in prison for a long time and had seen countless people who acted one way to his face and another behind his back.
Hector also came out to ease tensions. “Right. George, he was a little rude as he was anxious. Don’t blame him.”
“Prepare a new copy of the contract and give it to Natalie, alright? She will be in charge of this project.” While Hector broke the ice, he didn’t forget to let Natalie take over this.
After hearing this, Old Mr. Johnson could only remain silent.
If Alder was unhappy, he wouldn’t let them take over the project and the Johnson family would lose a lot of money.
“Zavier, you hear that? I won’t give in to your rude request. Don’t threaten me with the 2 million project!” Natalie finally had the confidence to resist, she turned to Zavier and said loudly.
Zavier looked awkward but he still pretended to be a gentleman.
Ludwig said with a smile, “Since that’s the case, I shall not bother you any longer. I got some things to deal with. I may leave now.”
After saying this, Zavier left with a gloomy face. Ludwig failed to embarrass Alder this time and got a big shame on himself. This was the second time he was humiliated by Alder!
You are just a f*cking manager. With my family’s strength, I can easily destroy you!
Zavier thought viciously in his mind. He wouldn’t forget what happened today.
Alder said with a relaxed expression, “Who said she will kneel down if I find a project worth 20 million?”
