Allen Weisselberg, CFO of the Trump Organization, retained a senior position in one of Donald Trump’s golf resorts in Scotland despite being removed from several positions across the Trump business empire.
On July 15, Weisselberg was still listed as a “person with significant control” over Golf Recreation Scotland, the parent company of Trump’s Turnberry Resort on the south-west coast of Scotland.
He remained listed despite being removed from a number of roles in Trump’s business units following a 15-point charge against him and the company.
His role at Golf Recreation Scotland appeared in documents filed with Companies House, the UK register of private companies.
He was eliminated last week as director of Trump International Golf Links, which runs Trump’s second Scottish golf course in Aberdeenshire.
Insider has asked the Trump Organization to comment on Weisselberg’s continued role at Golf Recreation Scotland.
The Washington Post reported Monday that Weisselberg would stay with the Trump Organization but may have been removed from company records to avoid questions from “regulators, lenders or sellers” about his presence.
The position at Golf Recreation Scotland gives Weisselberg voting rights, influence over the company’s trustees and the ability to appoint and remove directors from the company. The other person with significant control is Donald Trump Jr. Eric Trump remains the sole director of the company.

Manhattan prosecutors announced a 15-point indictment against Weisselberg and the Trump Organization on July 1, alleging he tried to hide his and other executives’ salaries in order to evade taxes, including 1, $ 7 million of his personal income. Weißelberg has pleaded not guilty to the indictment.
The charges are part of a wider criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s business and financial dealings. Weißelberg – one of Trump’s closest confidants – has reportedly defied prosecutors’ attempts to get him to hire his boss and produce evidence against him.
Last week, the Trump Organization in Florida filed a motion to remove Weisselberg from leadership positions at 40 other subsidiaries, the Wall Street Journal first reported.
It was said that Trump’s sons Eric and Donald Jr. or Donald Trump himself were now responsible for these entities.
He had also resigned from several other positions with the Trump Organization’s subsidiaries on June 25, in documents filed with New Jersey regulators, the Washington Post reported.
The Post identified 54 subsidiaries from which Weisselberg had left, insider Jacob Shamsian reported.
