Department store group Myer Holdings has engaged the services of executive search firm Spencer Stuart to find a successor to dumped CEO Richard Umbers. Spencer Stuart is said to be in the early stages of identifying potential candidates, but former David Jones CEO Paul Zahra is believed to be the leading contender for the role. Other potential candidates are said to include ex-Dick Smith Holdings CEO Nick Abboud and PAS Group CEO Eric Morris. Abboud and Morris have both previously held executive roles at Myer.
