The Cincinnati, Ohio-based Procter & Gamble Company has appointed Jon R. Moeller as chairman of the board, effective July 1. Moeller will assume the position in addition to his role as president and CEO following the retirement of current executive chairman, David Taylor.
Taylor served as CEO from 2015 to 2021. As executive chairman, Taylor led the board of directors and provided advice and counsel to the CEO and P&G’s leadership on company decisions.
“I want to recognize and thank David for his leadership of P&G over the last seven years as well as for his 40-plus years of service to the company,” Moeller said. “We have much to thank him for. Among other things, David committed P&G to achieve balanced top and bottom-line growth, completed the restructuring of our portfolio and led our most important organization change in decades. We are well-positioned to continue to serve consumers around the world with noticeably superior offerings that improve their lives.”
Moeller joined P&G in 1988. Prior to becoming CEO in 2021, he had been an integral part of P&G’s leadership team for over two decades. Moeller was P&G’s COO, with profit and loss responsibility for its Enterprise Markets – made up of Latin America, India, Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. He also led the company’s investor relations, information technology, global business services, sales, market operations, purchasing, manufacturing and distribution efforts. Before COO, he held the role of P&G’s CFO for more than 12 years.
In addition to Moeller’s appointment, the board of directors reappointed Joseph Jimenez as lead director of the board.
