Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL) has announced leadership team changes, effective from October 18, 2021. Sudhir Sitapati will join the company as managing director and chief executive officer. Nisaba Godrej, currently the chairperson and managing director of the company, will continue to serve as executive chairperson. With this move, the GCPL is looking to leverage Sitapati’s experience in building sustainable and profitable businesses to guide its growth strategy.
Sitapati will join the company from Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL), where he is the executive director – a position he has held since 2016. He has spent 22 years with HUL, where he has lead teams across categories and functions in India, Europe, South East Asia and Africa.
Godrej said, “I am delighted to be welcoming Sudhir to Godrej. His significant experience and passion for building sustainable and profitable brands and businesses align very strongly with our purpose at GCPL. Sudhir’s values-based leadership style also makes him a great fit with the Godrej culture. I look forward to his partnership in unlocking the amazing potential of our company and leading its next phase of growth.”
Added Sitapati, “It is an honour to have the opportunity to lead a company like GCPL and I am thankful to the Board for the confidence that they have reposed in me. I am very inspired by the legacy of the Godrej Group, and GCPL’s purpose of bringing the goodness of health and beauty to consumers across emerging markets. I am excited about working closely with the talented GCPL team to build on the incredible work they are doing and create sustainable, long-term value for our company.”
