U.S. President Barack Obama reportedly chooses Bob McDonald - the former head of Procter & Gamble CEO and Army veteran - as his next secretary of embattled department of veterans affairs.

An administration official said Obama was attracted by McDonald's corporate background and military service.

He retired a year ago after 33 years with Procter & Gamble - which is a Fortune 500 company.

If confirmed, he will succeed Eric Shinseki, who resigned late in May after the depth of the VA's problems was uncovered -- including evidence of delays in military veterans getting healthcare.

Obama will likely make the announcement this week.
