Dick Fuld has launched his own consultancy, but unlike the old days, the clients aren’t rushing the door, according to Charlie Gasparino at Fox Business.
Apparenly the former Lehman Brothers boss has been reaching out “to just about everyone he met while on the Street,” which, according to one financier, is “almost comical.”
What a bunch of hustler haters! Perhaps he needs to tweak his pitch.
According to Gasparino, Fuld’s message to potential clients is: I’m here to help you.
“Fuld is… pitching himself as a financial handy man, willing to help private equity players run businesses they’ve acquired based on his many years running Lehman Brothers… He’s confident he can grow the business because in the investing world “people need help.””
Since many would like Dick Fuld to walk around in a constant state of depression, this news probably doesn’t upset too many people.
