A.G. Lafley, the former chairman, president and CEO of Procter & Gamble, has joined the board of directors of Legendary Entertainment, the company announced Thursday.
Lafley joins Legendary as the company expands significantly. It recently launched Legendary East, a joint venture in China. And while it has long been a co-producer, it is increasingly developing its own projects.
It also recently closed on a new $700 million credit facility and has a new television division and a new comics division.
During Lafley's years at Procter & Gamble, sales doubled, profits quadrupled and the company's market value increased by more than $100 billion, according to Legendary.
He's a graduate of Hamilton College and holds an MBA from the Harvard Business School.
Lafley adds heft to Legendary's already hefty board: Jim Breyer is a partner in Accel Partners and is CEO of Breyer Capital. He also serves on the boards of both Facebook and Wal Mart.
