One of the sources said the hiring of the headhunter was aimed at speeding up the search and send a positive signal to investors, easing concerns over governance at the group.

The company is due to hold a board meeting on Monday to address governance issues among other merger-related topics. It has said it will appoint a chief executive by 2020.

A spokeswoman for EssilorLuxottica had no immediate comment.
