Wallace will take over on April 2 and Cook will serve as an executive chairman for a period of up to 12 months to oversee the transition, the company said Colgate’s incoming CEO has been with the company since 1987 and held several positions, most recently as its chief operating officer.

Wallace’s appointment comes at a time the company has been struggling to boost profit amidst increasing costs of raw material and a stronger U.S. dollar.
