Forest Laboratories Inc said on Monday its board had hired executive search firm Spencer Stuart to find a successor to its 84-year-old chief executive, Howard Solomon, and urged shareholders to reject director nominees put forth by activist investor Carl Icahn.

The company said it had a deep management bench, which included David Solomon, who is the son of its long-time CEO and was promoted in November 2010.
