Ranked just two spots after her peer Fama Francisco, Keith is the second CEO of a P&G business unit to make the list. Heading P&G’s global beauty division, Keith oversees around 11,000 employees and is responsible for brands such as Pantene, Olay, Old Spice, and Head & Shoulders. In the company’s most recently completed fiscal year, Keith managed to grow net sales to $13.4 billion and net earnings to $2.7 billion––each representing a 4% increase from the previous year. Under Keith’s leadership, that kind of growth has become a trend: This marks the 19th consecutive quarter that the businesses Keith leads have moved upward.
