Angry management: The dark side of Santander’s new boss - Financial News
When Andrea Orcel was named as CEO-in-waiting at Santander last month, it was the crowning moment of a stellar six-year spell running UBS’s investment bank. Orcel, renowned as a consummate dealmaker, proved he was also a skilled operator with a knack for streamlining the business. His elevation to the top of the Spanish bank, Europe’s second largest lender, was just reward for a job well done.

But a Financial News investigation, which included interviews with a dozen current and former UBS executives, reveals another side to Orcel’s tenure at the Swiss bank, one marked by his volatile temper and a series of angry clashes with other senior staff, according to several people who worked closely with him.

Some of those who have worked with Orcel say that despite his success, his aggressive management style makes him an odd choice to lead Santander. The Spanish lender is mostly focused on retail and commercial banking, businesses where the culture is more sedate than in investment banking. Orcel is “incredibly talented — but singularly unsuited to the CEO role,” a former colleague said.
