This month, $92 billion consumer packaged goods (CPG) company Procter & Gamble named Vittorio Cretella as chief information officer. He will replace Javier Polit on January 7.
Cretella has run his own consulting firm, VCAdvisory, since retiring from Mars Incorporated in 2017 after 25 years with the company, the last four as CIO. He has consulted to a number of CPG companies as well as logistics companies.
Jon Moeller, P&G’s Chief Operating officer, Chief Financial Officer and Vice Chairman, to whom Cretella will report, noted “Vittorio is a thought-leading CIO with a wealth of digitally influenced business experience. He is fluent in today’s IT technology and capabilities – and deeply understands the relationship between IT and business.”
