Executive summary: CEO of BP, 2007-10

As a wrecked BP rig (leased from Transocean) spewed an uncontrolled gusher at the floor of the Gulf of Mexico in May 2010, CEO Tony Hayward was interviewed by London's Guardian newspaper, and optimistically said, “The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume”. After several similar public relations gaffes while the oil continued spewing, Hayward was gently eased out of the CEO position, and replaced by Robert Dudley.
