Executive summary: CEO of Citigroup, 2003-07

Succeeded Sanford I. Weill as CEO of Citigroup in 2003.

Under Prince's watch (17 September 2004), Citigroup's license to bank in Japan was revoked after evidence of illegal conduct (money laundering, overcharging customers) was uncovered. Also under Prince's watch was $2.65 billion in payments to settle fraud claims over the WorldCom scandal. An additional $2B in payments settled the Enron claims -- examiner Neal Batson found that Citigroup actively and knowingly assisted in Enron's managing of off-the-books bookkeeping. Prince resigned from Citigroup in 2007, after the company announced it was writing down $6.5B (expected to rise to between $8B and $11B) due to the subprime mortgage collapse.

His exit package, including share awards, share options and pension entitlements, totals about $95-million.
