A.G. Lafley, a 1969 graduate of Hamilton College and a member of the Board of Trustees, is featured in the July 8 edition of Forbes Magazine.The article, "A Fresh Face: A.G. Lafley is giving Procter & Gamble a radical makeover," describe s Lafley's 25-year rise through Procter & Gamble, and the company's new emphasis on beauty care products.

"Like the monarch in Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs' Court, Lafley often makes house calls incognito to find out what's the minds of his subjects. 'Too much time was being spent inside Procter & Gamble and not enough outside,' says Lafley who took over during a turbulent period two years ago. 'I am a broken record when it comes to saying, 'We have to focus on the customer.'"
