P&G paid a dividend for the 122nd consecutive year – one of only nine companies to have done this. The Company increased the dividend by 7%. This was the 56th consecutive year the dividend increased – one of only six companies to have done this.

Dimitri Panayotopoulos, Vice Chairman of Procter & Gamble Global Business Units
Dimitri, a global business leader with vast international experience, is Vice Chairman of Procter & Gamble Global Business Units.
In his current role, Dimitri is responsible for P&G's total sales and profits. He oversees all of P&G's brands, including Tide, Ariel, Olay, Pampers, Pantene, CoverGirl, Gillette, Duracell, Dawn, Bounty, Always, Braun, Charmin, Iams and Prilosec and many more. As a career P&G executive, Dimitri has built a reputation as an in-touch leader who works closely with his teams and retail customers to grow businesses globally through a deep belief in the power of collaboration and a deep passion for winning.
Born in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania, Dimitri prides himself on his Greek-African heritage and the adventurous spirit of his grandparents, who left Greece for Tanzania to build and work their dreams for a better life. His first languages are Greek and Swahili, but he is also fluent in English, French, and German which he uses naturally in his travels around the world to customer stores, consumer homes, technical centers and manufacturing facilities. Dimitri began his career with P&G in 1977 as a Salesman in the United Kingdom, where his natural ease to engage directly with people helped propel him to Sales Manager in Switzerland and then various advertising and brand management positions in Germany. It was his first country assignments in Egypt (Country Manager and General Manager) and China (General Manager, Regional Vice President and President) where his passion for building and expanding sustained unified brands, businesses and organizations in third-world environments was truly realized. His eight-year tenure in China grew the business from disjointed franchises and joint ventures to a wholly owned business. During these years, P&G grew to be the leader in Beauty in China through flagship brands like Olay, Head & Shoulders, Pantene, Rejoice, SKII and Safeguard. For his efforts in China, Dimitri received the Friendship Award in 1999, China's highest award for foreign experts who have made outstanding contributions to China's economic and social programs.
In 2001, Dimitri left China to lead the market development organization known as CEEMEA or Central Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, which consists of over 110 different countries. This was the year that the Global Business Units were established in CEEMEA. Dimitri brought his China experience in Beauty to CEEMEA, establishing P&G Beauty as a priority and growth-driver for the region. As Group President of Global Fabric Care in 2004, Dimitri increased the pace of innovation and scale and established Fabric Care as "The Heartbeat of P&G" while leading the growth of Downy, Lenor and Gain to become billion-dollar brands. While in his last role as Vice Chair Global Household Care, he drove the business unit to become the fastest-growing business within P&G by leveraging business strengths globally, driving scale and fast-tracking innovation across all categories and markets.
Currently as Vice Chairman, Global Business Units, Dimitri is continuing to focus the organization on breakthrough innovation and big ideas, speed to market and scale across all of the businesses to drive growth. He is committed to unifying people with a hands-on passion and purpose towards the bigger goal, all the while remembering his commitment to the unique individual, whether he or she is a Consumer, Customer or Employee.
