    Question 'who' or 'whom'

    Hello,

    I came across the following sentence in the Yahoo/Forbes News story - Duke Heirs Caught in Billion-Dollar Fortune Battle


    Fighting over control of trusts and estates is not limited to billion-dollar fortunes. That's why the choice of whom is to serve as executor or trustee is always a critical component of proper estate planning.

    Should this be 'who is to serve as executor'? Or it this correct use of 'whom'?

    Thank you

    It should be 'who'.
