Procter & Gamble Professional promoted Ola Idzikowska to Sales Senior Director National Accounts and Foodservice Distribution in its North American business unit.
“This promotion recognizes Ola’s breadth of experience, strong results, and operational discipline. Her strategic thinking, focus on delivering results, and industry knowledge will contribute to her success in this critical role,” says Paul Edmondson, Vice President, P&G Professional North America.
Born in Poland, where she earned her master’s degree in Business at the University of Economics in Poznan, Ola joined P&G Poland right after university and began her career in customer management. Throughout her career in Poland, she helped P&G design core go-to-market strategies, develop and launch new initiatives, and deliver business growth by leading sales teams. After moving to the US in 2008, she continued her P&G career by helping to develop global programs and grow P&G’s e-commerce business. Most recently, her accomplishments include developing strategic plans, new tools, programs and initiatives for P&G Professional.
“To lead P&G Professional’s North American Sales Team at such a pivotal time in the industry is exciting work,” says Ola. “2020 brought major disruption to the industry – not only stifling business growth, but also major changes in habits and practices – like the explosion of e-commerce, and sky-high expectations, especially in the area of consumer and employee safety. Our customers are expecting more, their patrons are expecting more, and P&G Professional is leading the way with top brands that people know and trust to deliver a safe and clean environment. I look forward to this challenge and helping our customers grow their business.”
