Madhusudan Gopalan is not a regular CEO. Gopalan makes sure he makes all his employees feel like they're at home. From commenting on new employees’ professional updates to leaving heartfelt farewell messages on LinkedIn, Gopalan makes sure people come and leave the company on a happy note.

Gopalan, who is the current MD and CEO, has been elevated to be the senior vice-president, grooming and oral care for P&G Japan and Korea. He took charge of P&G India in 2018. Gopalan has over 20 years of experience with P&G and is an IIM-Calcutta alumnus. His portfolio spans multiple business units, across various regions including India, the US and ASEAN countries.

In his last role, he led the Indonesia operations of the company, where he was instrumental in boosting sales growth, cash productivity, share turnaround and strong value creation.

Gopalan brought the same culture to the India operations too. His colleagues, current and former, call him a man with a ‘clear vision’.
