The Procter & Gamble Company announced at its 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders that Christine McCarthy was elected to its board of directors, effective immediately. P&G shareholders elected all 12 P&G directors, including McCarthy and 11 incumbent directors, according to preliminary voting results.
McCarthy has served as senior executive vice president and chief financial officer of The Walt Disney Company since 2015, where she oversees the company’s worldwide finance organization, which includes brand and franchise management, corporate alliances, corporate real estate, corporate strategy, enterprise controllership, enterprise social responsibility, enterprise technology, financial planning and analysis, global product and labor standards, investor relations, risk management, tax, and treasury.
“Christine is a highly accomplished leader, bringing to P&G’s board extensive strategy, leadership, and risk management skills and valuable corporate governance experience,” said P&G’s Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer David Taylor. “Her extensive knowledge of complex financial analysis and reporting for a global, consumer-facing company like Disney will be an invaluable contribution to the company. We are extremely pleased to welcome Christine to P&G’s board of directors.”
Prior to her appointment as CFO, McCarthy held positions of increasing responsibility at Disney, most recently as executive vice president, corporate real estate, alliances and treasurer from 2005 to 2015.
At P&G’s 2019 Annual Meeting, Company shareholders also adopted board proposals to ratify the appointment of P&G’s independent registered public accounting firm, for an advisory vote on executive compensation, and to adopt the Procter & Gamble 2019 Stock and Incentive Compensation Plan. The results of the vote, announced Oct. 8, are considered preliminary until final results are tabulated and certified by the independent Inspector of Elections. Final results will be reported on a Form 8-K that will be filed with the SEC, at which time they will become available on www.pginvestor.com and www.sec.gov.
