Yahoo Finance Live anchors discuss Unilever CEO Alan Jope’s decision to retire next year.
Unilever chief executive Alan Jope will retire at the end of next year after fumbling an attempt to kick-start growth at the FTSE 100 giant by failing to seal a £50bn deal with GSK. Mr Jope will be leaving after five years in the chief executive role, Unilever said and a formal search for his successor has started. His predecessor Paul Polman had held the position for a decade.
Jope’s departure at end of 2023 will end career spanning 37 years at Marmite and Dove soap maker
