Kimberly-Clark Corporation has named Doug Cunningham to president of its EMEA consumer business. Cunningham is currently managing director of Kimberly-Clark Australia and New Zealand. Going forward, he will report to Mike Hsu, the No 33 consumer goods company’s chairman and CEO.

This comes after a series of other key executive appointments earlier in the year, which included its first chief R&D officer by way of Coca-Cola. Cunningham will be responsible for one of the company's most dynamic and diverse regions, serving consumers in 120 countries with iconic brands across developed, developing and emerging markets.

"Since joining Kimberly-Clark, Doug has delivered strong consumer-inspired innovation to grow our leading brands and gained market share across our categories. He has also strengthened our customer relationships and built and developed an excellent leadership team. He is a great fit to lead our EMEA business," said Hsu.
