Former London Philharmonic FD jailed for fiddling £647,000

Cameron Poole frittered the money stolen from the orchestra's accounts on a life of luxury including a mansion and holidays around the world

A former financial director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra who
embezzled
hundreds of thousands of pounds from the company has been punished with a
four-year prison sentence.

Cameron Poole spent the money on a life of luxury including a mansion,
holidays around the world and artwork worth tens of thousands of pounds during
the three-year fraud.

Poole also left the LPO with a £648,000 black hole in its accounts,
The
Times
reported.

Passing sentence at Southwark Crown Court, Judge Deborah Taylor said: “These
were serious offences. You were in a position of the utmost trust, and in that
position you must have been aware of the potential danger and damage to the
orchestra that you taking this money for your own personal gain could have had.
