Rio boss tipped for BP post in executive shuffle

  • The Guardian, Thursday 15 January 2009

Jim Leng, a former senior executive with the steelmaker Corus, is to succeed former Shell executive Paul Skinner as chairman of the mining group Rio Tinto. Skinner is to step down in April at Rio’s annual meeting, but there is now speculation that he will be announced – perhaps as early as next month – as a successor to BP‘s chairman Peter Sutherland, who steps down this summer. BP insiders insist no decision has been taken on who will replace Sutherland, who is a former European competition commissioner, but they admit that Skinner’s energy experience would make him a good choice.
