Today, P&G CEO David Taylor and CFO Jon Moeller talked to investors and analysts at the Consumer Analyst Group of New York (CAGNY) Conference about our continued progress on P&G's strategy to deliver balanced growth and shareholder value.
The CAGNY conference is a high-profile meeting of investors and analysts who follow CPG companies, including P&G. P&G typically delivers a presentation at the conference each year, as do many of our major global competitors.
At the conference, Jon shared a short recap of Company results (as reported in January), telling investors that P&G is a profoundly different Company than just a few years ago – stronger, more focused, more profitable, – and designed for the future.
Through portfolio transformation, step-change productivity improvements, supply chain transformation, and organization and culture changes, we’ve significantly enhanced our ability to grow and create value – for today and for the future.
David then talked with investors about P&G's strategy to deliver this growth and balance, and our continued progress.
We're focused on creating and extending competitive advantage through superior product performance, packaging, brand communication, retail execution and value - including examples from Always/Whisper, Febreze, Olay, Pampers, SK-II, Tide and more;
We've made good progress on productivity improvement, and we're committed to continued cost savings to provide fuel for innovation and investments needed to accelerate and sustain faster top-line growth; and
We're transforming our organization and culture to enable better execution.
