Unilever has recruited an executive from Amazon to lead its Beauty & Personal Care business.
Sunny Jain, currently the head of the Core Consumables at Amazon, will begin his new role at Unilever as President, Beauty & Personal Care, in June.
Prior, Jain was at Procter & Gamble for 16 years, where he worked in working in New Business Creation, Marketing, Sales, and Information Technology. He joined Amazon in 2013, where he was responsible for Health & Personal Care, Beauty & Grooming, Luxury Beauty, Grocery/Food, Baby, Private Brands, the Pillpack subsidiary, and other innovation teams.
Alan Jope, Unilever CEO, said: “Sunny’s unique experience – which combines both consumer goods and online retail industries – coupled with his understanding of the beauty market, make him exceptionally well suited to help us deliver our growth ambitions for our Beauty & Personal Care division. Sunny also has a strong sense of purpose and is passionate about high performance, and will therefore undoubtedly be a highly valued addition to our team.”
Sunny Jain said: “I am delighted to join Unilever, a company I have always hugely admired for its commitment to sustainable business, its truly global footprint, and its talented team. Its Beauty & Personal Care division boasts some of the world’s most iconic brands – Dove, Axe, Lifebuoy and Lux to name just a few – while the transformation of its portfolio and its move into high growth spaces such as Prestige and ecommerce make it well positioned for future success. I look forward to bringing my varied experience of the industry and deep passion for serving consumers.”
