Rich hypocrite Jorma Ollila joins U.S. investment bank

By John Donovan

Jorma Ollila, the departing Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Plc., has joined a New York based investment bank, Perella Weinberg Partners.

I can only assume that they are not concerned by the scandal of his failure to disclose ownership of a Luxembourg company worth €8.2 million. He admitted breaking the law,  but prefers to call it “neglecting the law.”

This from a man who has preached the gospel of transparency.

What a gap between the lofty rhetoric in his speeches, no doubt written by someone else, as opposed to his actual deeds.

On reflection, he does seem qualified to be a banker.
