Johnson & Johnson has scrapped the position of Global Chief Marketing Officer after Alison Lewis, who held the position for almost six years, announced her resignation, according to a report published by Best Media Info.
Lewis’ duties will be shared among her colleagues after her departure, slated for mid-July. Her next steps have yet to be revealed.
“This is a proud moment for me. After five years as the CMO of Johnson & Johnson, I am ready to pass responsibility to a marketing organisation that is agile, close to the consumer and one that possesses a contemporary skill set that will help the consumer business grow in this rapidly changing environment,” said Lewis, per Best Media Info. “I was bought in to be a change agent, but the talent and passion of the team at Johnson & Johnson also changed me. I will always be inspired by Johnson & Johnson’s purpose to change the trajectory of health for humanity and feel good that I was able to contribute to this noble effort in my own way by building a modern marketing team with the inherent strength to carry these iconic brands forward.” “
