Who’ll we get to run our bank?

I’d thought it was a nearly-amusing coincidence that Northern Rock’s ex-chairman Matt Ridley shared a name with the journalist and science writer.

But no, apparently they’re the same guy. Now, I know that chairman is a non-exec role, but even so – if I were selecting a chairman for a major bank, I’d probably opt for someone with more experience in financial services than, err, none at all. Or at least, someone with more experience in running a medium-to-large company than, err, none at all…

    I believe he inherited the job from his father, Viscount Ridley….not sure whether he also gets the title at the appropriate time or not.
