CEO exits

Image 11 of 11


BP - TONY HAYWARD: Mr. Hayward appeared destined as of July 26 to step down as CEO of BP within months. As the public face of the company’s emergency response team during the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, he became a lightning rod for impolitic public statements he made while overseeing spill containment and cleanup. BP’s stock value has plummeted and the company has spent more than $4 billion so far on efforts to plug the leak, clean up the oil, and reimburse people for lost income. Hayward is seen here aboard the Discover Enterprise drill ship in the Gulf of Mexico on May 28.
