The Board of Unilever Nigeria Plc has announced the appointment of Mr. Robert E. Clarke as its Managing Director effective 1st October 2006.

Mr. Clarke, who is 54 years old, brings about 30 years working experience in Unilever across three continents into the job.

He has worked at various times in Nigeria for over 12 years, the most recent of which was January 1998 to August 2004 when he served as Vice Chairman/Chief Executive of Unilever Nigeria Plc.

The company also recorded consistent growth.
