BP CEO Tony Hayward, who infamously said, “I want my life back,” has gotten his wish.  BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg has announced that Hayward will no longer be handling day-to-day operations in the Gulf. Svanberg told Sky News that the post will be handed over to Bob Dudley, the company’s managing director (pictured).

“It is clear Tony has made remarks that have upset people,” Mr Svanberg said.

The chairman explained that Mr Hayward left Britain for the US after the explosion with the express purpose of dealing with the response to the spill, but stopping the flow has not gone to plan. […]

“This has now turned into a reputation matter, a financial squeeze for BP and a political matter and that is why you will now see more of me,” Mr Svanberg said.
