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.”

Its Beauty & Personal Care division boasts some of the world’s most iconic brands – Dove, Axe, Lifebuoy and Lux to name just a few – while the transformation of its portfolio and its move into high growth spaces such as Prestige and ecommerce make it well positioned for future success.
