Unilever boss set to retire

Unilever boss Paul Polman will retire at the end of this year.

Polman, who has run the Marmite and Dove soap maker for the past decade, was under fire this year for his plan to change Unilever’s structure.

Unilever has headquarters in both London and Rotterdam and the proposed change would have seen it based solely in the Netherlands.

Alan Jope, who is president of Unilever’s beauty and personal care division, will replace Polman.

Unilever chairman Marijn Dekkers said Polman was “an exceptional business leader who has transformed Unilever, making it one of the best-performing companies in its sector, and one of the most admired businesses in the world”.

He will stay on until the middle of next year to help the transition.
