Were You Impressed With Erin Callan?


Lehman Brothers chief financial officer Erin Callan this morning faced what was perhaps the biggest challenge of her career: explaining Lehman's losses and need to raise capital to the markets. She began by lowering expectations--saying the Q&A on this morning's conference call would be limited because this was a preliminary announcement and more granular numbers were still being worked out--and wound up answering many questions in great details.
She's getting mixed reactions. Many are impressed by her confidence and competence with talking about Lehman's large asset sell-off and deleveraging. Others, however, aren't sure that Lehman really has a enough of a grip of the risks faced by its portfolio. So we decided to ask the experts, you.
After the jump, our poll on Callan's Monday morning performance.
