Apollo Real Estate Advisors[edit]

A number of IP edits to this article give whois data of being from "Apollo Real Estate Advisors" (also known as AREA Property Partners) - part of Apollo Management. I am concerned that there may be a COI here - does anyone know if there is any connexion between Paul Myners and Apollo? DuncanHill (talk) 20:23, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Paul Myners[edit]

Hi Duncan

Just wondering if it would be possible to change the image on the Paul Myners page? I am afraid I am relatively clueless about these things but I think that the picture is from a webcam so actually deforms the image of Lord Myners. It is also from the Stuckist website so is biased and unfair in its depiction, as well as out-dated. Could it be replaced with a more up-to-date image?

Kind regards

Hi Emma, the best place to make requests like that is at the article talk page - Talk:Paul Myners, Baron Myners. I've had a look on Wikimedia Commons, and we have very few pictures of Paul Myners. You can see them here. If someone uploaded a better picture, appropriately licensed for use on Wikipedia then it could be used. While we're talking, could you confirm if you, or the organization you work for (Apollo Real Estate Advisors, AREA Property Partners or Apollo Management) have any connexion with Paul Myners? It's very important on Wikipedia to declare any possible conflicts of interest. I'll copy your message and my reply to your talk page and to the article talk page. Best wishes, DuncanHill (talk) 15:10, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Lord Myners and the IoM Kaupthing thing[edit]

Hi Duncan,

My aunty was having a read about Lord Myners before making an investment with a company Lord Myners now works for. She mentioned that there is nothing on wiki about his involvement with the Kaupthing Singer Freidlander disaster in 2008. Aparently he helped in the then Government's coverup of its involvment by sending out letter's accusing the Savers in that Bank as Tax Dodgers. I did some research of my own and there is a website that has published a copy of the letter but it is a bit coarse and nasty which I think is why it is not mentioned. I think this involvment should be mentioned however, as he was a major player in the outcome.

Hope this helps, thought I'd highlight is. And keep up the good work! :-)

Not done: We're currently using a free image, so unless yours is freely licensed as well, we wouldn't change it. If you do have a free image, upload it at Wikimedia Commons, then reopen this request with the filename by changing |answered= to "no" in the template at the top of this section. — Bility (talk) 22:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

RfC: Bringing page up to date / introduction + background and personal life[edit]

Hello Wiki community, this is Jack, I work for Edelman in London, UK.

To begin with, I just want to disclose that Lord Myners is our chairman, so there is a COI here. However, after reading this Wiki entry and seeing this is listed as 'Start Class', I feel that the page can be enhanced with additional factual and encyclopaedic detail.

It also has some now out of date information. I hope we can work together to present a more complete edition of this entry. As an employee of Edelman, I have not and will not edit the article. Particularly as I do not want to cause any reason to question the neutrality of this article. However, as a person with links to Paul Myners, I would like to provide additional detail. I’ve compiled a few thoughts for potential additions to this posting, including links to 3rd party sources to help maintain factual accuracy.

I think it is relevant to add to the lead section that as well as being made a life peer in consequence of his appointment, he also was made a Member of the Upper House of Parliament. It seems unnecessary to say he’s non elected as it’s implied from ‘by consequence of his appointment’ so this is repetition. He joined the Lords on 16th October 2008 and now sits as a crossbencher – another fact that seems quite worthy of inclusion. [Parliament website referencing Paul’s current status in the Lords: [1]

Just moving on to his background and personal life, it states his political views are not known. While I won’t dispute this – I do have source material saying he views himself as a ‘progressive liberal’. This would seem worthy of inclusion. [2]

It’s also prudent to point out that Alison Macleod is now a former chair of the Institute of Contemporary Art; and that Paul Myners has residences in London and near Falmouth, as well as five children.

Initial Telegraph article announces Alison Macleod’s appointment, while the second confirms that Donald Moore is the current Chair [3] [4]

Chairman of the Tate[edit]

once upon a time, no? Johnbod (talk) 16:19, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@Johnbod, not quite sure what you're trying to get at. If you are pointing out that he no longer serves as a trustee at the Tate then I would tell you to read to the end of the sentence: "he has also held a number of third sector posts, including chairman of the trustees of the Tate and chairman of the Low Pay Commission, all of which he relinquished on his ministerial appointment". If you're doubting that he ever held this position then see the Tate's own website here. Ebonelm (talk) 16:24, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Ok, I just didn't see it, on a quick look through. It should be more prominent, and the category added. Johnbod (talk) 18:04, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
