Oct. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Diageo Plc’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Walsh is seen as a leading candidate to replace Unilever’s Chairman Michael Treschow, the Sunday Times reported, citing unidentified people with knowledge of the matter.

Walsh, who is a non-executive director at London- and Rotterdam-based Unilever, the world’s second-biggest consumer-goods company, is seen as the “internal candidate” to take over from Treschow when he steps down, the newspaper said. Treschow, however, is not expected to relinquish his role for at least two years, according to the newspaper.
