Amazon’s FMCG boss jumps ship to lead Unilever’s beauty division
Amazon’s head of ‘Core Consumables’ is leaving the e-commerce giant to take up a leading role at Unilever’s beauty and personal care business, which represents 40 per cent of the company’s turnover.
Sunny Jain has led Core Consumables at Amazon for the last six years, following 16 years at rival Procter and Gamble.
During his time at Amazon, Jain was responsible for brands within health and personal care, beauty and grooming, luxury beauty, grocery/food, baby, private label categories and pharmacy.
Unilever CEO Alan Jope said Jain’s “unique experience” made him “exceptionally well suited to help us deliver our growth ambitions” for the division.
“Sunny also has a strong sense of purpose and is passionate about high performance, and will therefore undoubtedly be a highly valued addition to our team,” Jope added.
Jain will take up the role and become a member of the leadership executive in June.
