CNBC Titans Procter & Gamble

About the Show

Only in America could two immigrants — an English candle-maker and an Irish soap-maker — create what would become the most powerful consumer goods company in history. In the 1830s, when William Procter and James Gamble founded the company that would bear their names, they could never have envisioned that one day their products would touch everything from babies’ bottoms to ladies’ eyebrows. With intimate interviews and unprecedented access to legendary former CEOs John Pepper and A.G. Lafley, as well as with current Chief Executive Bob McDonald, this episode of CNBC Titans pulls back the curtain for an inside look at Procter & Gamble.
