Lafley Inducted Into GMA Hall Of Fame

  • August 30, 2010
A.G. Lafley, former chairman, president and CEO of Procter & Gamble Company, has been presented with The Grocery Manufacturers Association's 2010 Hall of Achievement Award.

Lafley, who became president and CEO in 2000 and chairman of the board in 2002, retired from P&G in February, after 32 years of service to the company. 

During his leadership tenure, Lafley's focus on consumer-driven innovation and consistent, sustainable growth helped more than double P&G's sales and increased the company's number of billion-dollar brands from 10 to 22, according to GMA. He also managed P&G's largest-ever acquisition, the 2005 purchase of The Gillette Company for $54 billion.

Lafley, who served on GMA's board from 2000 to 2009, was presented with the award at the association's annual Executive Conference, being held this week in Colorado Springs, Colo.
