It looks like former Barclays chief Bob Diamond won’t be showing his face at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, the Wall Street Journal’s Sara Schaefer Munoz and Dana Cimilluca report.
From the Journal: (emphasis ours)
But one of Britain’s heretofore most visible bankers, Mr. Diamond, who stepped down as Barclays CEO in July, isn’t likely to be seen around the Olympic park. The American banker, who had been a fixture for years at U.K. events including professional soccer, golf and the rarefied Chelsea Flower Show, had been planning to attend several Olympic events as a guest, said people close to him. But after the furor surrounding his resignation, he is expected to stay away. A representative for Mr. Diamond didn’t return calls for comment.
