Procter & Gamble (P&G) has appointed a new global general counsel following the retirement of legal group stalwart Jim Johnson, promoting deputy general counsel Steven Jemison to the role.
Johnson began his P&G career in 1973, when Richard Nixon was president of the United States. He became deputy general counsel in 1990 and went on to lead the legal group in 1999. Over the course of his career, Johnson worked on the acquisitions of household brands such as Gillette and Wella.
P&G chief executive office Alan Lafley said: "He is broadly respected for the clarity of his advice and counsel which has enabled the company to operate to the highest possible standards.
P&G's new general counsel, Steven Jemison, has had a similarly long career in the company. Jemison joined P&G in 1981, rising to the position of deputy general counsel 25 years later.
Lafley said: "Steve is an exceptional lawyer and leader who will continue to provide high levels of counsel and service in his new role."
