Arco Timmermans comments on new CEO Unilever

The Scotsman Alan Jope is to succeed Paul Polman as CEO of Unilever, a clear sign in the eyes of Arco Timmermans, Professor Public Affairs by special appointment at Leiden University: ‘It seems to me that Unilever is moving with the market’s demands.’

Dutch radio station BNR invited Arco Timmermans to comment on the appointment of Alan Jope. ‘The distance between Unilever’s management and the Netherlands has surely grown bigger with the departure of Polman’, according to Timmermans, ‘especially with the upcoming Brexit.’

You can listen to the broadcast (in Dutch) here, the segment with Arco Timmermans starts at 3.13 minutes.
