Procter and Gamble says Langer leaves legacy

22nd April 2009

Procter and Gamble (P&G) has asserted Hartwig Langer has left an “enduring legacy” to the beauty industry.

Ed Shirley, vice-chairman of the company’s beauty and grooming division, made this comment after Mr Langer’s retirement, fully effective as of January 1st 2010, was announced.

Patrice Louvet has been named his successor, but Mr Langer will continue to serve in special assignments after he steps down in July to ensure a “smooth transition”.

Mr Shirley asserted the latter challenged a theory in the industry that communicating with consumers would not generate new ideas during his time with P&G.

“Hartwig has been a game-changing leader and strategist,” he said.

Mr Lovet has worked for the company for over 20 years and has experience operating in Europe, the US and Asia.

Mr Shirley concluded: “He is a Beauty expert whose experience in skin, hair and colour cosmetics will help us further grow our prestige beauty business.”

Last month, the firm announced its 2012 sustainability goals. The targets covered areas such as improving the environmental impact of its operations and products.
