Sir Philip Hampton set to be new GSK chair

RBS chairman to replace Sir Christopher Gent

philip hampton gskGlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is set to name the Royal Bank of Scotland's (RBS) Sir Philip Hampton as the company's new chairman, according to local reports.

Several UK media outlets have published stories suggesting GSK will this week officially announce Sir Philip (pictured) as chairman-designate, replacing Sir Christopher Gent when he steps down in 2015.

The news come at a time of pressure for GSK after the company was recently hit with a $487m fine for illegal marketing practices in China.

Sir Philip has served as chairman of the board at RBS since 2009, overseeing the company during a time of global economic collapse.

He has experience in a wide variety of industries, with previous roles including chairman of Sainsbury's and as group finance directory at Lloyds TSB, BT Group, BG Group, British Gas and British Steel.

He is also a former chairman of UK Financial Investments Limited, which manages the UK Government's shareholdings in banks.
