Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Martha Lane Fox, the co-founder of Lastminute.com, is joining Selfridges as the righthandwoman of Galen Weston, the new owner of the London department store.

She said to be "thrilled" by the job offer, says the Sunday Telegraph. The broker between Lane Fox and Weston is said to be Royal Mail chairman Allan Leighton, who sits on the board of both Lastminute and Selfridges (and many, many more).

Lane Fox, still only 30, resigned from Lastminute earlier this year, when the online travel broker declared its first profit.

And in slightly related news, Dinesh Dhamija, founder and boss of Ebookers, Lastminute's biggest rival, was today named as Britain's top entrepreneur by Management Today
