Dick Fuld Ready To Hit The Party Circuit Again

Ready to partyAfter keeping a fairly low profile over the past 6 years, following the whole implosion of Lehman Brothers situation, Fuld announced Monday night that he’s ready to rock. Text him the details of this weekend’s rager and he’s there, assuming the ole ball and chain doesn’t have other ideas. Read more »

Uncooperative Laws Kept SEC Off Dick Fuld’s Back

Prosecutors got bored investigating Lehman Brothers pretty fast, but not so the SEC, which persisted until last year in trying to come up with something, anything to throw at Dick Fuld, at great personal risk and to no avail. Some (Mary Schapiro, for one) are still puzzled by this. He has George Canellos to thank. Read more »

If you had to pick a current or former Wall Street CEO to be your father-in-law, it stands to reason that Dick Fuld would have to be close to the bottom of your list, yes? Lloyd, obviously, would be a delight. Vikram would probably be fun, too. Something about Jamie just seems very pal-y, father-in-law-ish, once you get past him letting you know he’ll take you out in the middle of the night, no questions asked, no finger prints left behind if you ever do anything to hurt his child. Brian Moynihan would finally loosen up and stop being awkward around you circa your 20th anniversary. Hank would probably be slightly scary but in a good way. Someone who gets into “physical altercation[s]” with fans of the opposing team at a children’s hockey game is probably not a guy you want to sit across from at Thanksgiving or play squash with after he’s figured out you can “earn points by hitting your opponent with the ball when he/she is between you and the front wall.” And looking down the line, it stands to reason that Dick Fuld would definitely be close to the bottom of your list of candidates for ex-father-in-law, yes? Aaron Packles knows what we’re talking about. Read more »

Do Not Feed The Consultant

The prospect of physical violence does not rate on the list of risks inherent in hiring Dick Fuld as a consultant. Read more »

New versions of the BlackBerry mobile device won’t come equipped with BrickBreaker, a simple game that for years was installed on every BlackBerry and at its peak developed a cult following among traders and Wall Street executives. Richard S. Fuld, the former Lehman Brothers chief executive, became so addicted that in 2006 he had his technology department remove the game from his device in an effort to break his habit. Nick Manning, a spokesman for BlackBerry, on Wednesday confirmed the company’s decision to remove the game from new devices. [Dealbook]

One tale many love to tell about Richard S. Fuld, besides the one involving him destroying an 158 year-old institution, is that of the time he got into a fistfight at his son’s hockey game, with a parent from the opposing team. Though there have been many stories over the years of adults who lack impulse control throwing down at their children’s sporting events, perhaps people were fascinated by the fact that the the CEO of a public company was unable to reason that punching someone in the face at a Peewee hockey game (or anywhere in public? or anywhere period?) = bad, keeping your hands to yourself = good.  On that note, one sports fan reports that Fuld has since matured, and realizing his own limitations, now travels with protection (for himself/spectators in his section).

Dick Fuld’s Weekend Is Looking Up

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigators have concluded their probe of possible financial fraud at Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and determined that they will probably not recommend any enforcement action against the firm or its former executives, according to an excerpt of an internal agency memo. Under a heading reading “Activity in the Last Four Weeks,” the undated document reads, “The staff has concluded its investigation and determined that charges will likely not be recommended.” [Bloomberg]
