Centrica : British Gas owner Centrica faces board shakeup as chief executive steps down

BRITISH Gas owner Centrica is facing fresh chaos as its chairman resigned on medical grounds and its boss is leaving without a permanent successor, the firm said yesterday.

Centrica said its chairman Charles Berry, who has been on medical leave since 12 February, had tendered his resignation with immediate effect. Berry, who has chaired the group for just a year, is stepping down following advice from doctors to reduce his workload.

Chief executive Iain Conn, who agreed to resign last summer, will step down with immediate effect.

Finance boss Chris O'Shea will become interim chief executive "while the search for a permanent chief executive continues", the company said.

Scott Wheway, who has been a nonexecutive director of Centrica since 2016, will take over as chairman immediately. He has been acting chairman since Berry took medical leave.

"I'm acutely aware that I'm taking this role at a time when we need to navigate our way through the current volatility caused by the impact of coronavirus," Wheway said yesterday.

"Protecting our employees and customers is a priority for us, particularly those who are vulnerable," he added.
