After 26 successful years at P&G, Ingrid Rivera, Director of P&G External Relations and Corporate Marketing, retires from the company.

One of the most successful Latinas within P&G, she had a wonderful career with P&G, and made countless contributions to the company and to the Latino community.

On Thursday, August 3rd, she had her retirement party at P&G, with her friends and colleagues wishing her all the best in her new endeavors. As somebody pointed correctly, knowing Ingrid, it won't be really a "retiring" for her, but more like a "re-wiring" for new adventures. And we know that whatever she'll do, she'll be very successful at it!
