Lehman Brothers

(LEH)

is dumping CFO Erin Callan and COO Joseph Gregory after the firm earlier this week said it expects to report massive second-quarter losses, according to a

CNBC

report Thursday.

Lehman shares have plummeted in recent weeks, as concerns have mounted about the firm's capital position. The firm on Monday

warned

it expects to post a $2.8 billion loss and raise $6 billion when it reports second-quarter results on Monday.

Callan's fall is precipitous. The CFO was widely lauded for her stewardship of the firm earlier this year, but recently was assailed by hedge fund manager David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital for masking losses.
