Unilever United States, part of Anglo-Dutch consumer products giant Unilever, has  announced the creation of two new organisations: Marketing Services and Brand Building with Customers.

Laura Klauberg, most recently head of global marketing for Unilever Cosmetics International has been named vice president, marketing shared services, and Lisa Klauser, currently vice president integrated marketing capability, Unilever Foods, has been named vice president brand building with customers.

The company said the two groups will draw upon best practices from across the company to build excellence in marketing and create a single way of operating across the region.

"Laura and Lisa will work to lead Unilever's charge in developing these new capabilities," said Michael Polk, Unilever Group VP, Foods NA. "As Unilever comes together as one company in the United States, these new organizations will play a critical role in driving the growth of our total portfolio. We're looking for these teams to unlock new ideas and approaches that accelerate both category and brand growth."
