Former FTC Chairwoman Named Top P&G Legal Officer

CINCINNATI (AP) — A former Federal Trade Commission chairwoman will become the chief legal officer at Procter & Gamble Co.

The consumer products maker says Deborah Platt Majoras, who joined P&G two years ago, will succeed Steven Jemison on Feb. 1.

P&G says the 58-year-old Jemison will retire Sept. 30 after 29 years at the company.

The 46-year-old Majoras has been with the Cincinnati company for two years and moves up from senior vice president and general counsel.

During Majoras’ 2004-2008 tenure at the FTC, the agency approved P&G’s $57 billion 2005 acquisition of Gillette provided the companies sold some overlapping products.

P&G’s chief legal officer handles litigation including patent and trade issues, regulatory compliance, and labor law.
