Jim Leish is set to retire next year.

After a more than 36-year career with P&G Canada, Jim Leish, vice-president--sales, has announced his retirement effective Feb. 12, 2021.

Since starting with the company in 1984, Leish has held a number of sales roles at P&G, both in Canada and the U.S. He has been leading the sales organization in Canada since 2014, according to the company, and has "consistently over delivered on business results."

David Blackmore, who has returned from the U.S. where he lead P&G's sales organization for North America home care, will succeed Leish in the role. Blackmore will report to P&G Canada president Geraldine Huse. He will be located in Toronto
