Scumbag Dougan

You'll just have to imagine that there's a Burberry cap over this...

Dougan Calls Bankers Out-Earning Investors Unsustainable


http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...-unsustainable

2 days later...

Credit Suisse chief Brady Dougan rewarded with 34% pay rise

Brass balls indeed

Re: Scumbag Dougan

Not that he cares but to lay off staff, deny the remaining ones raises, reduce infrastructure to the barest of bones and say it's because business is bad while stuffing his own pockets - greedy, pathetic, spineless, short-sighted, selfish parasites, all of them.

You can't take it with you and if they carry on like this, someone will probably flip and help one of them discover this. I could simply not live a life of nothing but taking and being hated by pretty much the whole population of the country you live in. If you do well, you should do good and I've yet to hear of that bunch doing anything useful in that area. Treating their employees with more respect and consideration would be a start.

Re: Scumbag Dougan

no morals, no ethics and the amounts are ridiculous...just pure and simple greed -

hopefully they are digging their own grave! If a country like Switzerland has showed that this is not acceptable more will follow...

To be fair, Mr Dougan steered the CS through a rather difficult period. That he is greedy is a DéFORMATION PROFESSIONNELLE and possibly connected to working in the Banking Business


The Advantage of the NEW one is that he is NOT from Investment Banking and will rather concentrate on VERMOEGENS-VERWALTUNG. Another advantage is that he speaks German, also in public (Mr Dougan was NEVER heard speaking German) . Do not Forget that Mr Dougan is what the SVP generally describes as NICHT INTEGRIERBAR & NICHT BEREIT ZUR ASSIMILATION and so a subject for deportation to his homeland

Re: Scumbag Dougan

Yes, but the new guy does not speak Swiss German so he will hardly impress the SVP (given that they are not especially keen on immigrants from germany). Thomas Minder has already attacked the new CS boss

Re: Scumbag Dougan

Apparently the ability to speak Swiss German (or be a Swiss National for that matter) is not the penultimate qualification required to run a (Swiss)bank. Shocked.
Dogs bark. The caravan moves on.

Thomas Minder is not SVP

Edit: Oops, just checked and found out that he is not actually a member but sits with the SVP parliamentary group.

He does NOT have to impress the SVP (incl Mr Minder) but rather, beside the general public, the FDP and the SP -- beside the point that he already promised to learn dialect when fully here

He doesn't need to impress the public or any political party. His position is not a democratically elected one. He needs to win the confidence of his employees, customers and shareholders.

If he choses to burn bridges to his SVP clients, I'm sure there are other banks willing to accept their patronage with open arms. But I expect he's too smart to go down that road, no matter what some people here seem to be fantasizing.

I didn't know that but he is certainly a bigot and a hypocrite so he fits in well with the SVP:

Re: Scumbag Dougan

Thiam: Hello Mr Minder, I am your new bank manager.
Minder: And I'm the guy who gave your shareholders a say in how much they're paying you. Ha ha ha.
Thiam: Racist hypocrite.

Don't think so somehow.

And the customers are those who no longer were fully satisfied with Mr Dougan. He is not to burn bridges. And he does not depend on the SVP Clients, so that if some of them refuse to work with a bank which has a black at its top, then so be it

I do NOT think that the CS shareholders take advice or command from Mr Minder

Actually I was referring to his employing Grenganger while opposing immigration

http://www.20min.ch/schweiz/news/story/29902679

Why does he attack Thiam being appointed as CS ahead and say CS is no longer a Swiss bank? With Dougan it was a Swiss bank and now it's not?

I don't think Minder was ever a friend of CS or of Dougan, or any other big bank for that matter. The Minder Initiative was largely about pissing on their hydrant.

I think he banks with Raiffesien or somebody like that.
