Hindustan Unilever has announced that Rohit Jawa will take over as managing director and CEO from 27 June 2023. 
He will be appointed the CEO designate and whole-time director from 1 April 2023. Jawa, who is currently chief of transformation at Unilever in London, will also take over as president, Unilever South Asia. 
He takes over from Sanjiv Mehta, who is retiring from the company after 10 years at the helm. 
Jawa joined Unilever in 1988 as a management trainee. He has worked across South East Asia, North Asia, Philippines and UK.
Nitin Paranjpe, non executive chairperson, HUL, said, “Sanjiv with his foresight has led HUL to become a high-performing and future-fit business. He has been an integral part of the Unilever Leadership Executive and has driven the South Asia growth agenda as the president of the market cluster. As the president of FICCI last year, Sanjiv made a significant contribution towards the industry in India. Through his passion, commitment, and endless energy, he leaves behind a business that is now poised to achieve even greater heights.”  
He added, “I am delighted to welcome Rohit back to India. He has a deep understanding of the business landscape particularly in Asia and has led the transformation of Unilever businesses in China and in the Philippines. I am certain that with his astute business acumen, and growth mindset Rohit will take HUL to the next level of performance.”
