Vikram Pandit escapes the ax yet again

Citigroup Inc. (C) Chief Executive Vikram Pandit has had more close calls than James Bond, and like the super spy he has somehow managed to survive them all. Some members of his management team may not be so lucky.

According to the Financial Times, a report by consultants Egon Zehnder offered a scathing assessment of Terri Dial, the head of Citigroup's troubled U.S. consumer bank, Lew Kaden, who runs the legal and human resources departments, and Don Callahan, a Pandit ally who is chief administrative officer. Regulators requested the report earlier this year.
