The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG): Probable Candidates for the CEO Post

Boston, MA 08/25/2014 (wallstreetpr) – Consumer packaged goods company, The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), has been on a transition ever since current CEO, Allan G. Lafley, returned from retirement mandated with the responsibility of restoring the company’s growth metrics that was apparently stagnating according to USA Today.

Since his return, Lafley has made management changes that have seen the emergence of five executives seen as his probable successor. The fact that the company has never chosen anyone to the top position from the outside means that whoever succeeds Lafley will be selected based on experience and proven career.

Lafley has done his best in turning around the fortunes of the company seen by impressive quarterly earnings that beat estimates amidst poor economic conditions. The growth of sales in the Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), as well as management changes highlight how Lafley plans to vacate the office while also leaving it in good hands.

David Taylor

David Taylor makes the list as a possible contender for the top post after running the company’s largest factory in Pennsylvania, as well as, having run the highly profitable unit, razor business. Taylor comes with lots of experience having worked on various management jobs across Asia, Europe and North America. He is accredited to have overseen the improvement of organic sales in the razor business that grew from 3% to 7% during his tenure, while also unveiling Gillette Body and Flex Ball shaving systems.

Martin Riant

Martin Riant is the current president of global Feminine and Family Care unit that is responsible for things like paper diapers, towels and toilet paper.
