Today, I called several middle market i-banks with significant regional expertise in various domestic markets. This crazy MD returns my phone call and I introduce my group and what it is that I would like him to help us with. I then proceed to ask, which bank he is with and the guy blows his lid. His response was something to the effect of:
"Do you know who I am? Im returning your phone call and your asking who the hell I am? This is absolutely ridiculous...goodbye!"
The maniac then proceeds to call me back 8 times in a row but does not respond when I say hello (which means he is psycho or he was unaware that he had forgotten to hang up the line).
Does this guy not understand that he works on the sell-side and he wants me as a client so that he can generate fees? I guess he has forgotten the hierarchy of finance. Ive been fortunate to have worked with great bankers and have never seen such an egregious ego-maniac lose his temper due to his over-inflated ego. If this MD works at your bank please let me know.
