News Summary: Hess to split roles of CEO and chairman; Elliot pushes on for new board

Associated Press

BREAKUP: Under pressure from some of its shareholders, Hess Corp. said it will split the positions of CEO and chairman.

THE EXECUTIVES: John Hess, son of the company founder, will hold on to the CEO title, but the non-executive chairmanship will go to John Krenicki, former GE vice chairman, if shareholders approve during the company's annual meeting next week.

THE OPOSITION: Hedge fund Elliott Management says the move isn't a concession and vowed to continue to push for its own slate of board nominees.
