Join us on December 13th for a LIVE webinar with David Taylor, Senior Advisor, Clayton Dubilier & Rice LLC, Former Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, Procter & Gamble for a session on “A Look Back: Where We’ve Been & Why the Future is Bright.”
David is a proven leader with over 40 years of experience. Today, David serves as a senior operating adviser at Clayton Dubilier & Rice LLC, private-equity firm. Prior to this, he served as P&G’s Chairman, President & CEO from 2015 to 2021 and as the Executive Chairman of the Board from 2021 to 2022.
During David’s tenure at P&G, he and the people of P&G transformed the company returning it to sustainable, balanced growth and value creation. To do this, David and P&G employees had an honest conversation about what was needed to address established ways that were holding the company back and how to use the company’s strengths to build a stronger base for a consumer products company in a changing world. David focused first on revitalizing P&G’s winning culture of high standards and accountability and raising the standards of excellence in everything the company does, most specifically in establishing a higher level of superiority across all elements of the consumer experience. With these foundations for success in place, David moved to create a more agile organization structure, which decentralized decision-making and empowered the people closer to the consumers the company serves.
As a result of these actions and others, P&G grew the markets in which it competes and grew its share of the market with balanced top-line and bottom-line results. P&G grew organic sales mid-single digits and grew core earnings per share high single digits on average over David’s six years as CEO. Adjusted free cash flow productivity averaged 106% and over $85 billion of cash was returned to shareowners. Importantly, P&G returned to the top-third of its peer group in market total shareholder return.
David graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering.
David and his wife reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
