In her new role Kathryn will head up global planning responsibilities for Safeguard and regional planning for Head & Shoulders and Olay in Southeast Asia, Australia, Indian and Korea.

She will work alongside Neel Chaurasia, global equity director for Safeguard and Gerald Gonzalez, regional director for Olay AAIJK.
