The April 1985 cover of Metro magazine featured Colin Reynolds and Seph Glew of the Chase Corporation as 'the darlings of Queen Street'. Fittingly, the backdrop is a mirror glass building – the company built a number of skyscrapers. Corporate raider Chase Corporation was one of the largest companies listed on the stock exchange in the mid-1980s. They were crippled by debt following the 1987 share market crash and collapsed in 1989, creating the biggest loss in New Zealand corporate history.
