Unilever Has A New Chairman of the Board

Unilever has announced that Marijn Dekkers will step down as chairman of the board with immediate effect. Dekkers, who was appointed in April 2016, made this decision so he can focus on his growing responsibilities as founder and chairman of Novalis LifeSciences, the investment and advisory firm. He will continue to serve as a non-executive director of Unilever. The board has appointed Nils Andersen to succeed Dekkers as chairman.
