UBS - Jason Chandler, RD East Coast
The new regional director for the east coast was named today--Jason Chandler. Apparently he has been running the NY Metro Region. What's the "low-down" on him?
Effective July, he is no longer a regional director. On Martin's call yesterday, he said Tarrantino will be offered a managing director position.
I'm not sure which is higher of the two: managing director or regional director. However, it's clear Tarrantino was removed as a regional director.- another was chosen over him. My impression is that it's a b.s. title ...maybe because he is probably still under contract or maybe they're being nice to him.
One other point, all the other regional directors who were eliminated from their posts were also given a managing director title.
That must be like being the Head of GAM (Global Asset Management) but better.
Maybe it stands for Global Local Asset Management, along the whole You and Us theme?
It sounds better. And leads to better jokes. Like Dorf Glam. (Bob Dorfman)
