Reports: Tony Hayward Out as BP CEO

BP’s gaffe-prone CEO, Tony Hayward, could be out the door as soon as today, according to reports. The company has declined to comment on the potential management shake up, which would place Mississippi-born Bob Dudley into the role of chief executive.

Of course, many media outlets can’t resist noting that Hayward may now “have his life back” as the CEO publicly wished in early June. The question is: will the change help improve BP’s image?
