Branded a Villain, Lehman’s Dick Fuld Chases Redemption

By Anonymous

Wall Street veteran, pilloried over bank’s collapse, has said his firm didn’t have to die. A new book agrees.

In the lobby of Dick Fuld’s advisory firm a framed print greets visitors with a stark message: “That Was Then This Is Now.”

A decade after presiding over the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Mr. Fuld is still working on the second act of a Wall Street career that many predicted had also expired in September 2008. But as the anniversary of Lehman’s demise nears, friends and former colleagues say Mr. Fuld’s mind is on what happened during Lehman’s final days.
