Procter & Gamble has announced that Robert A. Steele, vice chairman of Global Health and Well-Being, responsible for Oral Care, Feminine Care, Personal Health Care, Pet Care and Snacks, will retire from P&G on September 1, 2011, after 35 years of service.

"Rob has been and remains an outstanding leader whose impact on P&G stretches across the Company and will endure for decades to come,"​ said P&G CEO Robert A. McDonald.

"He has revitalized our Global Health and Well-Being strategy and portfolio, focusing on businesses where P&G can win long term," ​he added.

As part of this management change, P&G will consolidate its current three Global Business Units (GBUs). The Oral Care and Feminine Care businesses will become part of P&G's Beauty and Grooming GBU and the Personal Health Care, Pet Care and Snacks businesses will become part of P&G's Household Care GBU.

The company hopes these moves will help ensure each of the businesses continues to get the full investment required for growth globally while benefiting from synergies with P&G's larger businesses.
