Procter & Gamble has appointed two new directors to its board.

Sheila Bonini, Senior Vice President of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and Rob Portman, former US Senator, Congressman and US Trade Representative, will join with immediate effect.

Bonini leads private sector engagement for WWF, a role she has held since 2016.

Prior to WWF, Bonini served as CEO of global non-profit The Sustainability Consortium.

Portman, a lawyer by trade, boasts a three-decade career in public service, including service in two presidential administrations, two terms in the US Senate and six terms in the US House of Representatives.

Bonini and Portman’s appointments are anticipated to deepen the P&G board’s expertise in environmental sustainability and global trade, respectively.

“Sheila and Rob bring meaningful expertise, experience and acumen that further strengthen the capability of our board to help us effectively navigate opportunities to better serve consumers, communities and stakeholders in an increasingly complex macroeconomic environment,” said Jon Moeller, P&G’s Chairman of the Board, President and CEO.

“Sheila is an expert, innovator and thought leader across the public and private sectors.

“The diversity of her global expertise across international business, supply chain, research and regulatory affairs will further strengthen our ability to innovate and serve consumers with superior and more sustainable solutions,” Moeller added.

“Rob’s track record of partnership and collaboration, depth of knowledge across business, fiscal and trade issues, and solutions-forward approach to domestic and international policy, equip him to be an excellent advisor as we navigate the complexities of our global business."
