The CEO lost his mind. If some inoffensive environmental activists live rent-free in his mind, the guy is not emotionally strong enough to handle this job.

Credit Suisse CEO Tidjane Thiam has resigned after acknowledging that two spying scandals last year had "disturbed" the Swiss bank.

The board of directors unanimously accepted Thiam's resignation at a meeting on Thursday, appointing Credit Suisse (CS) veteran Thomas Gottstein as the new CEO, the Swiss investment bank said in a statement Friday.
More and more often I seem to be posting "you could not make this stuff up". The world seems to be getting crazier instead of maturing!

After maturity comes senility, I think we're definitely there

According to Swiss newspapers, Thiam is walking away with a paltry CHF 30 million.

I know why I don't have my money at CS. Or UBS. Bad enough to have Novartis shares. And the wrong jobs all my life.

Re: Private investigators chasing Zurich banker...

Yeah, that's always crazy thinking about how many days it takes the CEO to blow through your savings.

Normally, if you don't have scandals and are good with the media and your numbers aren't completely terrible, you can do a mediocre job like this for years.

Instead, he and his minions had go into full-on Gestapo-mode for why exactly?

Its behind a paywall, but probably the article where Mr Thiam complains about all the racism he experienced in his bank as well as Switzerland in general.

Because everyone knows that CEOs tend to get bullied for their skin color. Especially the ones who seem to fire people for any sort of personal dislike...


I am in tears...
