Video Transcript


Brian Sozzi: Last time I talked to you, maybe two and a half, three months ago, you seem to have embraced your new activist investor and board member Nelson Peltz. Said he’s doing and he has good ideas to help turn this company around and drive better results. Now, since then, Nelson has taken a campaign against Disney and they do not have that view or that same approach. As someone that has dealt with Nelson, why are you embracing him, and a company like that may not?


Alan Jope: Nelson Peltz has joined our board and brought all kinds of good ideas. His view on what the company needs us to do is very aligned with the agenda that we’re working on. A big part of our agenda last year was to simplify our organization. That was something he felt needed to happen. And somebody who has got a strong track record in the CPG industry we thought would make a good board member for Unilever. I can’t obviously comment on other companies.


Brian Sozzi: Does he unlock value in those meetings? What’s his thought processes?


I shouldn’t call in too much on one particular board member, but we expect all of our board members to make contributions that help guide the company and steer us in the right direction. Nelson’s an experienced board member who is very focused on performance and on setting up the company for the future.



Brian Sozzi: You’re also fresh off a key investor day, too. Really interesting slide deck, it does seem like you are driving a reimagination of Unilever. Where are you at in the process?


Alan Jope: So over the last five years, we’ve really been working on four things. First, making sure our executional muscle is in good shape. Secondly, continuing to evolve with portfolio, exiting spreads exiting T. Building up a business in luxury beauty and health and well-being has been important part of our growth agenda. Third, just to make sure everyone understands our strategic choices, what markets matter, what categories do we care about, what channels are we building. And then the fourth part of reinventing Unilever has been a very successful organization change from a complex matrix to five business groups with full accountability and extreme simplicity, so I only have now five I can either say throats to choke or backs to pat.


Brian Sozzi: Before—you’re supposed to be retiring at some point this year, what’s next for you?


Alan Jope: Well, at the moment, I’m 100% focused on Unilever, making sure we keep cranking it, quarter after quarter. That’s my job. I have very, very many interests outside my business work, and it’ll create some time to explore. There’ll be a bit of travel. I’ll get the chance to finish our around-the -world motorcycle trip for a start. That’s a work in progress.


Brian Sozzi: Oh jeez well stay safe and wear a jacket too. Unilever CEO Alan Jope. Good to see you again. Enjoy the rest of Davos.


Alan Jope: You bet.
