New Unilever CFO invests $20m in Unilever

Unilever’s new CFO Jim Lawrence has invested almost $20m of his own money in the company’s shares, the best guarantee that Unilever is not planning any risky operations, reports Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.

‘How my own shares are doing is more important to me than the salary I earn or the pension I build up,’ the paper quoted Lawrence as saying.
Unilever is only interested in companies which operate in a single national market in a product category that Unilever does not have. ‘Then we can offer a reasonable price and add value ourselves,’ Lawrence told the FD.
