A Manage closely
Explaination

An influence/impact grid can be split into four quadrants, where stakeholders will be plotted against according to their level of influence and impact. Stakeholders with low influence/low impact are likely to be monitored; stakeholders with high influence/low impact will likely be kept satisfied; stakeholders with low influence/high impact are likely to be kept informed; and stakeholders with high influence/high impact are likely to be managed closely. Tony falls in the latter of the options stated.
