BG Starts Search for New Chairman, Telegraph Reports

BG Group Plc hired city executive recruitment firm Egon Zehnder to find a replacement for Chairman Sir Robert Wilson, the Daily Telegraph reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

Wilson, 67, has been chairman since 2004 and last year signed a deal extending his tenure by two years; he wanted to get the search for his replacement under way in plenty of time, the newspaper said, citing people familiar with the matter.
