Unilever has appointed a former Heinz executive to lead the company as it races to fend off criticism over its social values and the threat of an activist investor.

Alan Jope will be replaced as chief executive of the consumer goods giant in July by Hein Schumacher, who is currently a non-executive board member and chief executive at Dutch dairy business Royal FrieslandCampina.

Mr Schumacher said he wanted to “deliver a step-up in business performance” at Unilever. His appointment fuelled speculation about a potential split of its food and non-food businesses.

UK and European markets closed lower as investors focused on the next U.S. Federal Reserve meeting that begins Tuesday.

U.S. stocks moved lower as investors await a blockbuster week that includes the latest Fed meeting, a flurry of heavyweight earnings reports, and jobs data.

Oil prices extended losses as looming increases to interest rates by major central banks and signs of strong Russian exports offset rising Middle East tension over a drone attack in Iran and hopes of higher Chinese demand.

Gold edged lower.
