Don’t just take our word for it. See what others are saying about P&G’s progress and plan. Vote Blue. SEC Legend: JIM CRAMER ERIN LASH DAVID HOCTHAUS CAROLINE LEVY
“Mr. Taylor has done remarkable streamlining. I think that there’s much more of a Jack Welch feel there now.” “In light of the vast array of actions the firm is undertaking, we fail to see a major impetus behind Peltz’s approach and little to suggest that his oversight would accelerate change.”
“P&G’s management and its board already have a plan to accelerate sales, profits and shareholder retruns. It’s not a secret. They’ve laid it out in public for Wall Street and anyone else to hear.” DAVID HOLTHAUS WCPO Editorial Board
“We believe David Taylor, now CEO for nearly two years, has already made the right moves to accelereate growth, including an organizational overhaul to shift decision-making closer to the consumer and tying employee pay to controllable successes.”

Many individuals and institutions are making their voices heard in the current proxy contest. See what they’re saying about P&G’s progress and our plan. SEC Legend:
“Strategy is clear, focus very evident: With structural changes in place and incentives appropriately aligned locally, P&G sounds increasingly confident in its ability to more consistently deliver balanced top / bottom line growth.”
Kevin Grundy
“What I think he’s [Nelson peltz] after?
If there weren’t lawyers here watching, I’d say we’re looking at a 75 soon to be 76 year old looking for one more final fling. This is not something that is needed, this is a man who’s already on five Boards if you count his own Trian. He’s on four major boards, that should be a distraction.”
Jeffery sonnenfeld yale
“F4Q17 results help fuel P&G’s case that it is in fact making progress on its articulated turnaround plan or stated more simply, it is not standing still.”


“P&G’s management has a credible plan in place to address years of underperformance and share losses, and is executing against it with a prudent sense of urgency.”
