This week marks the five year anniversary of Lehman Brothers filing for bankruptcy — what many consider to be the pivotal event that triggered the financial crisis of 2008.

David Ambinder was the senior vice president of global business support services at Lehman Brothers. After the company’s bankruptcy, he left the financial sector behind and is now a Mr. Handyman franchise owner. He joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio to discuss what it was like when the company went bankrupt.
