The changes are effective today and will mean the company’s marketing directors become brand directors and associate brand directors across its global network. P&G’s marketing division will now be known as brand management.

Roisin Donnelly, P&G's corporate marketing director for the UK and Ireland, has now been named the brand director for Northern Europe. 

The change intends to "unify brand-building resources to focus on delivering better brand and business results, clarify roles and responsibilities to make faster decisions, and simplify our structure to free up time for creativity and better execution," P&G said in a statement.

Brand management as a division will now consist of four areas – marketing, now renamed as brand management; market research, now named consumer and marketing knowledge; communications, and design.

This follows P&G’s announcement in February that it would be restructuring its marketing organisation. The brand management function will be moved from its regional silos to be run out of the company’s global business units of beauty, health and grooming, family care and home care.

P&G said the move would create "single-point responsibility for the strategies, plans and results for the brands".
