PG names Schulten to succeed Moeller as CFO

(Reuters) - Procter & Gamble said on Wednesday Andre Schulten, currently senior vice president of its baby care unit in North America, would succeed long-time finance chief Jon Moeller in March.

Moeller, 56, will retain his role as vice chairman and chief operating officer, the Pampers diapers and Gillette shaving products maker said.

Schulten, 50, who joined P&G in 1996, was previously senior vice president of finance & accounting for the company's global Baby Care, Feminine Care, and Family Care unit and before that for Western Europe.

"Andre is well equipped to take on this role, with a distinguished career in Finance & Accounting as well as critical business leadership recently leading North America Baby Care," Chief Executive Officer David Taylor said in a statement.

Schulten will receive an annual base salary of $750,000 in his new role along with equity grants and other executive incentives.

Moeller, P&G's finance chief since 2009, will be tasked with leading its enterprise markets unit, which contributes about 10% to total revenue, and handles go-to-market activities for business units in some of the company's smaller markets.

The company's shares were down 1% at $136.51 in morning trading.

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
