Erin Callan Out at Lehman

Erin Callan: different job, same lipstick.Photo:

Erin Callan, the Lehman Brothers CFO who was abruptly and humiliatingly demoted after she (a) got in a public fight with David Einhorn and (b) was unfortunately the public face of Lehman when they posted $2.8 billion losses, is leaving the bank entirely now. She’s going to Credit Suisse, where she will run “a global hedge-fund business.” Good on her for being all “fuck this shit” and scooting over to a company that seems relatively stable, even if the hedge-fund business is in its death throes. And we know the Swiss like Shania Twain, so they’ll probably appreciate Callan’s nude lipstick, unlike some people.
