Clorox Executive Chair Steps Down

February 1, 2021

Benno Dorer has stepped down from his position of executive chair on the board of directors for the Clorox Co., parent company of Clorox Professional Products Co.

Dorer had served as executive chair since September 2020, when he stepped down as Clorox CEO, a position he had held since 2014. As part of the board’s established long-term succession plan, Matthew J. Shattock has been appointed independent chair. Shattock, a member of Clorox’s board since 2018, currently serves as the chairman of Domino’s Pizza Group plc.

“Benno was an outstanding CEO for Clorox and a strategic force as our chair and later, executive chair,” said Pamela Thomas-Graham, Clorox lead independent director. “We’re grateful for his leadership and enabling such a smooth transition since Linda Rendle was promoted to CEO last September.”
