Nitin Paranjpe has spent 37 years with Unilever, including as CEO of Hindustan Unilever.

According to a report on ET, Unilever announced that Nitin Paranjpe, its chief people and transformation officer, would retire by mid-2024, marking about 37 years since he joined the consumer behemoth as a management trainee.

"For everything, Nitin has done for the organisation, I am incredibly appreciative. For the foreseeable future, he will remain the chair of Hindustan Unilever, by the way. And I am really appreciative that he will apply all of his knowledge and experience in that crucial position," Hein Schumacher, the CEO of Unilever, stated.
