The same proportion of leaders interviewed by Robert Half also said that finance teams need to posses an understanding of business strategy and vision.

first_img whatsapp Daniels quits as Lloyds boss Monday 20 September 2010 9:38 pm Share LLOYDS Banking Group chief executive Eric Daniels yesterday became the third UK banking boss to quit his position in just two weeks, during a turbulent time at the top of the industry.Lloyds said Daniels would retire in a year’s time, giving it time to conduct a thorough search for his successor both externally and within the bank.Primary soundings from the banking industry have thrown up a number of high-profile potential candidates for the role, including Naguib Kheraj, the former chief executive of JP Morgan Cazenove; Fritz Seegers, who quit as head of retail and commercial banking at Barclays at the end of last year; and Douglas Flint, HSBC’s softly-spoken finance director.The name of Stuart Gulliver, HSBC’s head of investment banking, was also being touted around yesterday in the City, though some believe that an investment banker would be unpalatable to the government, particularly given the furore over Bob Diamond’s appointment to the helm of Barclays earlier this month.Lloyds’ head of retail banking Helen Weir is thought to be the most likely candidate if the bank plumps for an internal candidate.Daniels’ decision to step down comes after the bank’s chairman Sir Win Bischoff started to make enquiries in the City about a potential successor earlier this year. In May, Bischoff approached former trade minister and Standard Chartered boss Lord Davies, though he has since accepted two positions as chairman of Hong Kong’s PineBridge Investments and as a partner at US buyout group Corsair Capital.

The deal led the bank to the brink of bankruptcy, forcing it to accept a part-bailout from the government, which still holds a 41 per cent stake.The Treasury yesterday insisted that the recruitment of Daniels’ successor would be a matter for the Lloyds board, adding that UKFI manages the taxpayer’s stake “at arm’s length”. However, government sources said the successful candidate would have to be “the right person at the right price”, suggesting the bank will come under significant political pressure not to lure a banking heavyweight with a generous pay package.Lloyds investors yesterday appeared unruffled by the upheaval, with the shares gaining 2.75 per cent to close at 77.41p. whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img whatsapp BAE hits out over carrier controversy ARMS giant BAE Systems has moved to defend a £3.8bn deal to build two new aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy, ahead of potential revelations about the controversial programme and government efforts to cut it back.BAE, which is building the carriers in an alliance with defence firms Babcock and Thales, warned that any decision to scrap one of the vessels would have left a gaping hole in the UK’s future defence capability.The group said construction of the carriers was so far advanced that cancelling one of them could hit thousands of jobs and strip the UK of its ability to build warships.BAE was speaking ahead of possible publication of the contract to build the carriers and the terms of business underpinning the deal, which might emerge as early as this week following several freedom of information requests.A BAE spokesman said: “Having got this far down the road with the carriers, suddenly to pull out would have left a huge gap in the work needed to keep skills in this country.”The carrier programme is about £1.4bn over budget after a decision by the last government to delay entry into service of the first of the carriers.The coalition government launched a review to allow new Joint Strike Fighter jets to use the boats after withdrawing the navy’s iconic Harrier jump jets.The first of the vessels is due to enter service in about 2020, leaving a gap of about a decade in the UK’s carrier air strike capability.The coalition has pulled back from cancelling one of the boats due to penalty clauses in the construction agreement, opting instead to put one of them in temporary storage.The BAE spokesman said an agreement with the government that underpins its work on surface ships prioritised keeping shipbuilding skills in the UK and cost savings.The spokesman said: “We’re pleased and proud to be working on the carrier programme, which is doing extremely well and is on track.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Share Tags: NULL KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Sunday 19 December 2010 10:02 pm whatsapp last_img read more
