Press Release September 30, 2015


Unilever Pakistan announced a change in leadership effective October 31, 2015 as the current chief executive officer, Ehsan Malik, retires on that day. Malik, after 24 years of service including nine years in his current role, will be replaced by Unilever Sri Lanka Chairperson Shazia Syed.

Under Malik’s leadership, the Pakistan business grew four times in size, added a statement released by the consumer goods giant.

Syed, who will be the new Unilever Pakistan CEO, joined the company as a management trainee in 1989. In her 26 years with the organisation, she has worked across most Unilever categories and was the vice-president of Customer Development Unilever Pakistan, added the statement.

As chairperson at Unilever Sri Lanka, Syed set the business on a growth trajectory, and the Unilever Pakistan business is expected to similarly benefit from her varied experience, added the company.

Unilever is one of the world’s leading suppliers of fast-moving consumer goods. Unilever Pakistan began its operations in 1948 and has since been closely connected to the Pakistani people with a focus on home and personal care and foods categories, added its statement.
