Investors Wish Unilever Would Speed Implementation Of CEO Polman’s Strategy

March 1, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
An independent poll of Unilever investors found considerable polarization of opinions about the company and CEO Paul Polman. But a strong theme was frustration with the lack of action on the company’s spread brands, perhaps due to Polman’s focus on sustainability issues. “The perennial ‘turnaround’ of spreads is frustrating; it is a constant drag on growth,” one respondent said. Bernstein Research’s poll of 100 investors found that generally they approved of Polman’s overall corporate strategy, but said the company had lost its momentum in executing the plan.
