Lynn Petrak for Progressive Grocer
Procter & Gamble (P&G) is bolstering its North American leadership team.
Company and industry veteran Monica Turner has been promoted to president of P&G North America from her most recent role as president of North American sales. She replaces the departing Carolyn Tastad, who will serve as P&G's new CEO of health care.
In her position as president, Turner, who first joined P&G as a sales representative in 1987, will spearhead efforts to serve customers, external stakeholders and consumers in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
“Monica has played a critical role in P&G’s impressive growth in North America over the past several years,” said David Taylor, chairman, president and CEO of P&G. “Her deep understanding of the business and organization, breadth of expertise across categories and business models, and winning track record make her well positioned to continue our strong success in this important market.”
Filling Turner’s vacated sales role is Maisha Webster, tapped as SVP and head of sales for P&G’s North American region. Webster is also a longtime P&G employee, first joining the company in 1997 and most recently generating notable growth for the company’s drug channel business as SVP for Walgreens and P&G’s U.S. drug customers.
