CINCINNATI More executive changes are underway at Procter & Gamble as Bernhard Glock, VP global media and communications, is retiring effective Sept. 30, according to published reports.

On July 1, a new leader officially took the helm at P&G as Robert McDonald, former COO, took over as president and CEO. He succeeded A.G. Lafley, who has become chairman.
