Household goods giant Reckitt & Colman is hunting for a global marketing director several months after a business restructure involving the division of the company into four business categories.
Reckitt also needs to fill the slot for a global research and development director whose responsibilities will include new product development.
Both positions were created when the company realigned its operations into four business categories (air care, surface care, lavatory care and pest control) in January.
The global air care business is still short of a new product development director. The directors of all four categories will report to the global marketing director once the post has been filled.
Earlier this year, Reckitt centralised its 150m budget with McCann-Erickson Worldwide, to promote household products across all four business categories as well as over-the-counter (otc) pharmaceuticals (MW January 12).
Last week, Reckitt announced 1995 yearly pre-tax profits of 285m at its annual results meeting. The figure is up from 270m the previous year.
