Ex-Barings man joins finance group
Former Barings deputy chairman Andrew Tuckey has joined financial services group Bridgewell as a senior adviser.
Tuckey has joined the company from Credit Suisse First Boston where he worked in the same capacity. John Craven, also from CSFB, has been appointed head of corporate finance.
In February this year Tuckey was excluded from the ICAEW for four years by a Joint Disciplinary Scheme tribunal for his failure to ‘ensure that [rogue trader Nick] Leeson’s activities were properly monitored’.
Tuckey was deputy chairman at the time Leeson brought down Britain’s oldest bank after accumulating losses of Pounds 860m, through illicit trading of futures.
Bridgewell was formed in last year to acquire the corporate finance division of Singer & Friedlander Limited. It now provides corporate finance advice to small and mid-sized UK corporates.
