Exiting P&Gers targeted by wealth managers, consultants
Fri 3:08 pm ET (at
YourEncore, a firm that hires former Procter & Gamble Co. employees to serve as consultants for other companies, is targeting hundreds of executives who could soon take voluntary buyouts from P&G. Launched in 2003 based on a business plan created by Procter & Gamble (PG), YourEncore hires people willing to work on projects that could last up to five months. Companies that use YourEncore consultants include Cincinnati-based P&G and dozens of other large consumer product, pharmaceutical and food manufacturers. “We do about 500 projects a year with P&G, everything from new product development to compliance, quality, regulatory and safety,” said Peter Kleinhenz, account director in the Blue Ash office of Indianapolis-based YourEncore. “That keeps going up.” I reported in November that P&G had offered thousands of managers the opportunity to apply for buyouts.
