I’m proud to share that on July 29th, P&G’s Board of Directors unanimously elected Jon Moeller, Vice Chair and Chief Operating Officer, to succeed me as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1, 2021.
Jon has been an integral part of P&G’s leadership team for well over two decades, helping develop the strategies that we are executing with excellence to drive P&G’s growth today. Jon is fully committed to P&G and P&G people. He is an outstanding leader, trusted confidant and valued partner to me and many across the Company, and I have benefited tremendously from his foresight, his focus and his friendship in my time as CEO.
In addition, Shailesh Jejurikar has been elected Chief Operating Officer, effective October 1, 2021. Shailesh currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company’s Fabric & Home Care sector, P&G’s largest business unit, which has consistently delivered industry-leading results.
I will transition to the role of Executive Chairman and support Jon and our terrific executive team as they continue to build on the strong momentum we have established through an integrated strategy that is being executed with excellence by P&G people everywhere.
