AZ - Exit the gas man

SIMON LOWTH, chief financial officer of AstraZeneca is to leave the drug maker in order to join oil and gas company BG Group in the same role. Lowth is set to leave the pharmaceutical company for BG when it reports its third quarter results at the end of October, having joined the company in November 2007.

 Though Lowth's departure from AstraZeneca was not planned, analysts had expected him to look elsewhere after he was passed over as chief executive last year, according to the Financial Times.
