There have been conflicting reports circulating about whether or not the Australian retail giant Coles Myer is looking for a replacement for its outgoing chief executive Dennis Eck. One report in The Australian claimed that the company had hired top executive search firm Egon Zehnder to track down a replacement for the out of favour chief exec. However, several reports record Coles Myer spokesman Greg Every refuting the claims saying: "The only search for top management at Coles Myer is the one currently underway for the Target managing director."
