(Reuters) - British defence contractor BAE Systems is set to name Cressida Hogg, the current chairman of property group Landsec, as its next chair, Sky News reported on Wednesday.

Hogg, who has been in the chairman role of Landsec since 2018, will be named as BAE's first female chair on Thursday, replacing Roger Carr, the report said.
