Unilever Nigeria PLC, a fast-moving consumer goods firm, has announced the hiring of Tim Kleinebenne as its new Managing Director.
This followed Carl Raymond Cruz’s resignation, which took effect on May 4, 2023.
Kleinebenne’s appointment was revealed in a corporate notice signed by its Company Secretary, Afolasade Olowe, on Tuesday.
Kleinebenne has 31 years of international experience in the FMCGs industry at Unilever, having graduated with a Business Economics degree from the University of Hamburg in Germany.
His previous experience includes senior sales and marketing positions, as well as over ten years as Managing Director of two publicly traded Unilever businesses.
“Mr Kleinebenne is currently Managing Director of Unilever Côte d’Ivoire and has also served as Managing Director of Unilever Ethiopia, where he established the business and built it into a leading local consumer goods manufacturer, and as Managing Director of Unilever Caribbean,” part of the statement read.
The company noted that its outgoing MD delivered significant appreciation in both turnover and profit and set Unilever Nigeria on a path to sustainable and profitable growth after steering the company through the difficult years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
