Nov 13 Procter & Gamble Co on Wednesday
announced that three long-time executives, including an adviser
to Chief Executive A.G. Lafley and P&G's chief technology
officer, were leaving in changes the consumer products company
said showcase how much talent it has waiting in the wings.
The departures include that of Dimitri Panayotopoulos, an
adviser to Lafley, who in a 36-year career at P&G held
management jobs overseas. He is stepping down on Jan. 2.
CTO Bruce Brown will leave on Feb. 1 and will be replaced by
Kathleen Fish, who currently oversees research and development
in P&G's fabric business.
"These changes demonstrate the depth and strength of P&G's
leadership bench," said Lafley, a former CEO who returned to the
helm in May to replace Bob McDonald.
Robert Fregolle, global customer business development
officer, will leave in June and be replaced by Carolyn Tastad,
currently a vice president.
