2015 Marcum MicroCap Conference Featured in The Wall Street Journal Article, "Lehman's Ex-CEO Is Resurfacing."
By Maureen Farrell
Richard Fuld Jr., who was chief executive of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., has been largely out of the public eye since the firm collapsed in 2008.
That is set to change next month.
The organizers of the 2015 Marcum MicroCap Conference said Mr. Fuld will address conference attendees in his "first major public address since leaving Lehman Brothers in 2008," the organizers said in a news release.
Mr. Fuld will discuss "the strategy employed by Lehman Brothers to become one of the world's leading investment banks, aspects of the financial crisis, the current capital market environment and the keys to success for today's growth companies choosing to access the capital markets now," the release said.
Mr. Fuld won't take a fee for his speech, and one of the conference organizers, David Bukzin, a partner at Marcum LLP, said that Mr. Fuld asked Marcum to instead donate his speaking fee, which would have been in the "low five figures" to the nonprofit Harlem Children's Zone instead. Mr. Fuld will take questions from the audience, Mr. Bukzin said.
