Procter & Gamble Co. has reorganized its executive ranks, grouping its global business units into four sectors in a bid to improve the company’s performance.
“This sector organization and leadership team will help us operate more effectively and efficiently to continue momentum behind P&G’s growth strategies,” said Lafley, P&G chairman, president and chief executive officer. “These changes build on the productivity and organization design work led by [former ceo] Bob McDonald, and will help us get closer to consumers and become more agile with customers.”
The key changes, which are effective July 1, are outlined below:
• Deborah Henretta has been named group president of Global Beauty. The sector includes beauty care, retail and professional hair care and color and prestige. She will also keep her current responsibilities as group president, Global Beauty Care.
• David Taylor has been named group president of Global Health and Grooming, overseeing shave care, Braun, oral care, health care and pet care.
• Martin Riant has been named group president of Global Baby, Feminine and Family Care. He will lead the sector in addition to his current role as group president of Global Baby Care.
• Giovanni Ciserani has been named group president of Global Fabric and Home Care.
They will each report directly to Lafley.
In addition to this new structure, P&G has named Dimitri Panayotopoulos, currently vice chairman, Global Business Units, to the role of vice chairman and advisor to the chairman and ceo. He will continue to report Lafley. Also, Melanie Healey, currently group president, North America and Global Hyper, Super and Mass Channel, will report to both Lafley and Werner Geissler, vice chairman of global operations. The company said the change reflects the size and importance of the North American market for P&G. Geissler will continue to report to Lafley with a focus on Western Europe and developing markets.
Lafley said, “These organization changes will help us operate better and faster as one unified team to win.”

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
