If there happensto be anyone who is really bored: laid up with flu perhaps and idly tapping a mousepad while doing so, an interesting (umm, OK not very interesting at all which is why I\’m not going to do it) task.
How many of the FTSE 100 CEOs are not UK origin?
The HPC report says only one foreigner was poached. But that\’s not the correct number. How many are foreigners?
I\’ve two off the top of my head, Bob Diamond and that Lloyds chappie. How many more are there?
And here\’s the start of a list:
Admiral Group: Henry Engelhardt (US)
AMEC: Samir Brikho (Lebanon)
Anglo American: Cynthia Carroll (US)
Antofagasta: Marcelo Awad (could be UK but worth checking)
Astrazeneca: David Brennan (US)
BHP Biliton: Marius Kloppers (South Africa)
BP: Bob Dudley (US)
Barclays: Bob Diamond (US)
Bunzl: Michael Roney (US)
Burberry: Angela Ahrendts (US)
Carnival Corporation: Micky Arison (Israel)
Essar Energy: Naresh Nayyar (India)
Experian: Don Robert (US)
Fresnillo: Jaime Lomelín (Mexico)
Glencore: Ivan Glasenberg (South Africa)
Inmarsat: Andrew Sukawaty (US)
International Airlines Group: Willie Walsh (Ireland)
Intertek: Wolfhart Hauser (Germany)
Investec: STEPHEN KOSEFF (South Africa)
That\’s erm, 19 out of 50 so I think we can take it that non-UK CEOs in the FTSE 100 are, ermm, quite common then?
