Before RIM Investment Management

I got this from my friend Per Kristian and can't keep my fingers off the keyboard to pass it on: This is a fantastic example of the classic "hole in the CV" (i.e. where the interviewer is meant to ask: "what did you do those years, then?"):

The top man listed on Cyprus-based RIM Investment Management's Management Team happens to be Arne Treholt:

(do take a good look at his CV from ... say... 1984 to 1993... before reading on)

Arne Treholt is famous, at least in Norway, for having given secret information to the Soviet Union during the cold war. The arrest of Arne Treholt in 1984 came as a huge surprise for many. Treholt had been a central person in the labour party (Arbeiderpartiet), and was a close collaborator with cabinet minister Jens Evensen, among other things in territorial negotiations with the Soviet Union.

The miracles of the interwebnet lets us dig out some more information:

  • Namebase.org listing for Arne Treholt provides citations in books like "A Worldwide Encyclopedia of Persons Conducting Espionage and Covert Action, 1946-1991" and "Who's Who in Espionage"
  • Dagbladet.no: Photos of Arne Treholt with KGB-general Gennadij Titov
  • Arne Treholt is also the author of the book "Alene" (Alone) and this spring another book by him is expected (an autobiography that has been in the works for the last 12 years)

I respect Arne Treholt as a very strong and very smart man. Like Ernest Hemingway said, "A man can be destroyed but not defeated". That's about him I believe. Even though I was really surprised by "hole in the CV"...
