Mathieu joined Unilever in April 2011 and has since been responsible for the creation of the company’s global marketing strategy based on building “brands with purpose”, which has resulted in above average growth according to the company.
A Unilever spokesperson said: “We thank him for his achievements here and wish him all the best in his new role.”
Mathieu previously held the role of senior vice president of global brand marketing at Coca-Cola, where he was credited for the “Open Happiness” platform.
