Back in Sept 2007 I wrote this about Tidjane Thiam, the then newly appointed FD of the Pru, the man with, perhaps, the most remarkable CV in the City.
But here’s the odd thing. He’s a CEO becoming a group FD. Not a common event. That almost never happens, except where CEOs are running much smaller divisions. The record shows Thiam is obviously a very talented and ambitious individual. Who would dare say that he will stop at being FD? In fact you wouldn’t. Clearly this is a man who must be tipped for the top and won’t remain a Group FD for too long.

We learn today that Thiam is now CEO of Pru. Given that he actually started work in March 2008, that’s barely a year before stepping up to the top job.
I don’t like to say I told you so, but I will.
