Business crisis; having to work on a holiday

ETA: Wow, so many awesome replies! I definately got what I needed, now it's just a matter of deciding which idea to go with *laughs* I'm planning on replying to each and every one of you, but it'll have to wait -- the story I'm writing is due tomorrow, and I need to writewritewrite like crazy (not to mention the RL stuff I have lined up to do, argh). So yeah, please don't think I'm not appreciative of your help if it takes me a day or two to reply to you personally!

Question: What kind of sudden work crisis would make a businessman have to go to the office on New Year's Eve, and be stuck there for around six hours?

...And before someone asks "What kind of businessman?", I'm embarrassed to admit that I have no clue. It's not really important to the story; I just need to get rid of the character for plot stuff to happen. He needs to be fairly elite though, just not the boss/owner/whatever. Maybe the chief financial officer, or a close subordinate thereof...?

Setting: Present day USA. When it comes to which state, I -- again -- have no clue. Doesn't really matter, as long as there's snow during winter.

Search terms: Various combinations with the words "businessmen", "crisis", "problem", "office troubles", and so on. It strikes me as being the kind of thing you can't really google, though :\

Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or experience you might have, and sorry for being so vague!
