Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) today announced the appointment of Yogesh Mishra as Executive Director, Supply Chain, HUL and Head – Supply Chain, Unilever South Asia with effect from September 1, 2022. Yogesh takes over from Willem Uijen who has been elevated as the Chief Procurement Officer for Unilever, globally.
Yogesh who is currently the Vice President – Supply Chain, Beauty & Personal Care, joined HUL in 1990 and over the last 32 years, has had a strong performance track record across various roles in manufacturing, quality, planning and technology. He had been instrumental in driving the ‘Winning in Many Indias’ agenda in Supply Chain and more recently, led the setting up of nano factories to further step up agility and flexibility in manufacturing operations at HUL.
Welcoming Yogesh to the HUL Management Committee, Sanjiv Mehta, CEO and Managing Director, HUL, said, “Yogesh comes with deep knowledge and diverse experience across various areas of the Supply Chain. Yogesh has contributed significantly towards creating a future-ready Supply Chain by not only embedding technology in our operations, but also developing a robust talent pipeline. I am certain that Yogesh will take HUL’s Supply Chain to the next level of performance.”
Thanking Willem for his contribution to the business, Sanjiv said, “In a challenging operating environment, Willem ensured that the HUL Supply Chain remained agile and resilient, and continued to serve consumers with essential products even during strict lockdowns. His vision for a future-fit supply chain helped us land several ground-breaking initiatives across our operations. It was under his leadership that our digitally advanced Dapada factory joined the World Economic Forum’s prestigious Lighthouse Network, becoming the first FMCG manufacturing site in India to be accorded that status. He passionately advocated the Company’s sustainability agenda and contributed towards making HUL plastic neutral. It brings me immense joy and pride to see him move on to a key leadership role in Unilever.”
