Howard Morgens began his career at P&G in 1933 as a salesman, to later become chairman and then chief executive officer (1957 to 1974). During his tenure, the company shifted from a U.S. soap and shortening company in to a broadly diversified international business.
Morgens’ incredible leadership led to P&G’s extensive brand share, quadrupling sales, and revolutionary changes in TV advertising. Such efforts helped Mr. Morgens garner a multitude of honors and awards for his business and civic achievements.
He also helped to establish the Business Roundtable and served on numerous national civic, social service and education boards.
