What better way to highlight the ever-growing gap between the rich and the poor than by forming a socially worthless bank, and appointing a CEO on an over-inflated salary to shuffle paper?
OK, there may be many better ways, but this is how appointmetotheboard has decided to do it.
No qualifications, experience or old school tie is required to become CEO of RedStar Bank. Anyone can submit an application. No stone will be left unturned in the search for the next Bob Diamond.
The rewards for the CEO will, of course, be considerable, if not legendary. A golden hello, a healthy salary, and a decent severance package when the axe falls after 12 months. In cash, not shares, of course. And then there’s the prestige – as a captain of industry, appointmetotheboard will be recommending the successful applicant for an Honour.
Being unusually democratic and transparent for a bank, the public can play a full role in the selection process by voting for their favourite applicants to be shortlisted for final consideration by the Appointments Committee. It is this Committee who will have final say on who will become the CEO.
During the CEO application process, appointmetotheboard will be supporting Barnardo’s, the UK’s leading children charity. With luck, the only official duty of the CEO will be to present them with an oversized cheque.
appointmetotheboard plan to raise sufficient funds to pay the salary for the CEO through selling merchandise and advertising revenues.
appointmetotheboard is an organisation campaigning for a fairer economy. appointmetotheboard want to put an end to a bonus culture that rewards high-risk, morally dubious practice and even failure. appointmetotheboard want to make sure that those with the most money do not use it to bypass but to take a fair share of the tax burden upon their shoulders.
