 EssilorLuxottica hires two headhunters for CEO search

PARIS (Reuters) - French-Italian eyewear group EssilorLuxottica said on Wednesday its nomination and compensation committee had started the search for a new chief executive officer with the help of two headhunting firms.

The company's board intends to appoint the next CEO by 2020.

EssilorLuxottica, which resulted from the merger of French lenses maker Essilor and Italy's Luxottica frame manufacturer last October, is in the midst of a disagreement between the sides, who accuse each other of trying to dominate the company.
