About Alan George lafley
A. G. Lafley describes himself a leader with high expactations and heart. And he relies heavily on managers inputs as he develops new plans.

Proctor & Gamble has had an amazing turn around under his direction. He believes that his companys planning and strategy will succeed if he has his workers behind him.

Their father-in-law called a meeting and persuaded his son-in-laws to become business partners. On the 31st of October 1837; 177 years ago the Procter & Gamble company was created.
They began by supplying the Union Army with soap and candles.
After the invention of the electric light bulb, the demand for candles fell significantly, thus causing the newly formed P&G to cease their production. During the Civil War, the government began to order mass quantities of soap from P&G for the Soldiers usethis significantly led to P&Gs return to the market and their second chance at rising in the business world.
As of July 1, 2014, the company structure is categorized into four Global Business Units (GBUs) and five Selling & Market Organizations (SMOs).
