Where is Fred Now?


Looking for notes with his signature?  The Telegraph reported in April that he had hired an assistant to sift through all the notes to be dispensed at ATMs from the RBS HQ in Gogarburn to ensure they all had his signature.

As Clay Davis would say, sh-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-t.

UPDATE – an annotation from Someone Who Knows Alec provides more anecdote.  More on the professional style of this glorified bank manager was reported by The Times.

“He never railed and shouted at people,” said a former chief executive of one of the bank’s subsidiaries. “He was facetious and withering – a classical psychological bully.”

  1. A Simulacrum of Someone Who Knows Alec Says:

    I know someone who used to work for RBS. They took bets on the number of photos of him in the house magazine. 20 was the minimum. My friend can well believe the Telegraph story. They say no-one was prepared to stand up to him and that it was an accident waiting to happen.
