Queen of Clubs
Erin Callan was the Chief Financial Officer of Lehman Brothers in 2008, who repeatedly reassured investors that Lehman was sound. She made many media appearances and gave interviews right up almost to the moment that Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy—the largest filing in U.S. history, $600 billion. Callan either ignored or stood by while the bank used misleading gimmicks to bolster its balance sheet by $50 billion, and she paid no attention to the various red flags that warned of the impending collapse.
