Reckitt has appointed Florence Paoli as Marketing Director for Australia and New Zealand, to oversee the business’ consumer hygiene portfolio.
Ms Paoli commenced working with the ANZ team in March 2022, adding to her already decade-long career at Reckitt, across both its Hygiene and Health business units in various global and local roles. Most recently, she was Global Brand Marketing Manager for Harpic, leading the sanitation innovation globally.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Paoli says: “I can already see that the Reckitt Hygiene team in ANZ has big ambitions to continue creating products and campaigns that address everyday challenges or help solve issues that impact our communities.
“I’m impressed by the impact achieved to date via local activation including the Glen 20 partnership with Meals on Wheel donating 50,000 hygiene kits to vulnerable Australians.”
Described as a passionate advocate of diversity and inclusion, Ms Paoli says she’s excited to join the Reckitt Hygiene ANZ leadership team which has a 50:50 gender split. She will continue driving this agenda internally as the Global Comms Lead for the Women@Reckitt Employee Resource Group and as a member of the Reckitt ANZ Diversity and Inclusion committee.
On Ms Paoli’s appointment, Reckitt Hygiene ANZ Regional Director Oliver Tatlow says: “We are thrilled to have Florence join our leadership team and are excited to see her take our team from strength to strength.
“Not only has Florence brought her global expertise to this role, but also a genuine dedication to support the culture of people and purpose led performance, which we’re so proud of here at Reckitt.
“We have big ambitions across the hygiene portfolio and Florence has the focus and commitment required to lead us into next year as we strive to create a cleaner, healthier world for our consumers.”
Ms Paoli replaces Saurabh Jain, who after two years as Reckitt Hygiene’s ANZ Marketing Director has returned to his native India to continue his career with Reckitt as Regional Marketing Director & SPOC, South Asia.
