'Y&R' Speculation: Victor Returns to CEO Seat After Victoria's Exit?

Young And The Restless speculation knows the CEO seat at Newman Enterprises is up for grabs. Victoria Newman Locke (Amelia Heinle) broke the shocking news that she reconciled with Ashland Locke (Robert Newman), the man who tricked her into marriage to steal the Newman legacy. 

Naturally, the family objected. Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) tried to talk sense into Victoria. Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) was secretly thrilled.

However, the patriarch of the family, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), was enraged. Victoria knows that the family will not accept her decision. Therefore, Victoria chose to walk away from the company and the family.

Nikki and Victor made the painful decision to let Victoria go. Yet Victor always has one more trick up his sleeve. Y&R spoilers for the week of June 13 to 17 reveal that Victoria and Ashland will plan a move to New York City. That leaves an opening for a CEO at Newman Enterprises on Young And The Restless.

Y&R: Who Will Fill the Top Spot?

Adam Newman conspired with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) to get Victoria Newman to reunite with Ashland Locke. The scheming couple did not have to work hard at all. 

Victoria played right into their hands. Now Adam is closer to getting the CEO spot. Still, Young And The Restless spoilers for the week of June 13 to 17 tease that Adam will plot revenge. Perhaps he is passed over for the CEO spot. Victor Newman could go in another direction.

Nikki Newman is already co-CEO and has been doing a great job. Maybe Victor will give his wife full responsibility for the company. 

Or Nick Newman could decide to come back to help run the company. The family and the business are in chaos right now. Nick could step up to protect both. 

Abby Newman Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) could be recruited for the role as well. While she has not been involved with the business, she may want to consider helping the family. Still, Victor could choose someone entirely different for CEO on Young And The Restless.

Victor Chooses the Best Person on Young and the Restless?

Victor will not want Newman Enterprises to suffer from Victoria's sudden exit. Young And The Restless spoilers for the week of June 13 to 17 tease that he will make a stunning announcement. Will Victor announce Victoria's replacement? 

Victor could decide that he is the best person for the job. After all, he built the business from the ground up.

If Victor takes over the role, it would certainly preserve the stability of the Newman Enterprises. It would also help Victor protect the company. 

All the Newmans still consider Ashland a threat. Locke tried a hostile takeover before. What's to stop him from trying again? With Victor in command, Newman Enterprises would be safest on The Young And The Restless.
