64. Alan Jope is Doubling Down
When a new CEO steps in to their new role at their new company, more often than not they take the company in a new direction. But what happens when you’re the new CEO at a company that has 100+ year roots in feminism, pensions, and social safety?
Enter Alan Jope, CEO of Unilever. With a company that has its products being used everyday by over 2 billion people, changing direction would be a massive undertaking. But Alan doesn’t want to change direction, he wants to double down on speed and scale. We find him in a unique moment of converging crises (COVID, Climate, Inequality, etc. to name a few) completely able to take care of everyone at Unilever, while accelerating the progress of addressing climate and sustainability, and staying accountable for it. You won’t want to miss what he has to say.
