Consumer product giant Unilever has announced changes to its management team as it seeks to strengthen for the future.

Doug Baillie has been appointed Chief HR Officer, following the recent departure of Sandy Ogg, and Jan Zijderveld will replace Baillie as President of Western Europe.

“Doug will bring the customer and consumer focus he has employed to such good effect in transforming the Western Europe business and bringing it back to growth to bear on a critical global role, while his experience in both developed and emerging markets will help us win the war for talent,”​ explained Paul Polman, chief executive of Unilever.

“Jan, currently Executive Vice President for South East Asia and Australasia (SEAA) will bring considerable experience of both Asian and European markets to his new role, building on the competitive position already established, ensuring fast, pan-European delivery of innovation into the marketplace and integrating the Sara Lee and Alberto Culver acquisitions when the latter has received regulatory clearance,”​ he added.
