Luxury Razors on Technoratic

Friday, March 13th, 2009

I want to share my passion for shaving with more and more people, so, after being recommended by a friend, I decided to register Luxury Razors on Technoratic to make it more visible on the Web and help people finding information and answers on their daily shaving habits. If you are looking for more information about Technoratic, you could start by looking at my Technorati Profile.

Pocter & Gamble Co. CEO get $3.5M bonus for Gillette

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Pocter & Gamble Co. gave its top executive a very “special” bonus worth $3.5 million for his “strategic vision” in the acquisition and integration of Boston’s Gillette Co. The Cincinnati-based company made the “special equity award” in the form of restricted stock, to Chairman and Chief Executive A.G. Lafley on Feb. 10, according to a regulatory filing yesterday.

The acquisition was the largest and most successful in the company’s history” said P&G, which purchased razor-maker Gillette in 2005 for $54 billion.

P&G, which recently cut its profit and sales forecast, waited until now to grant the bonus to make sure that savings goals tied to the Gillette takeover had been reached, company spokesman Paul Fox said. He said the bonus was “not unusual”. P&G’s finance chief, Clayton C. Daley Jr., got a $1.5 million special equity award for his “integral role in the valuation, negotiation and acquisition” of Gillette, according to an Aug. 12 regulatory filing.

$3.5 million "special" bonus

$3.5 million

Earlier that month, P&G said it would cut 215 jobs at its Gillette South Boston plant by mid-2013 and close a Devens warehouse staffed by about 400 contractors. Former Gillette CEO James Kilts drew heavy fire over the $165 million payout he got for selling the Hub manufacturing icon.

In these times of crisis, it’s hard to read such bonuses when jobs have been cut.

When would I find the time to shave

When would I find the time to shave

This weekend will be quite crazy for me, a lot of things to do, so it’ll be difficult to write a nice article about luxury razors, but I promess I will try my best !! In the meantimes, remember to read some techniques to do a great lather for instance (also a video of how to perform a lathering), or how to get a nice shaving brush for your uncle for Christmas (from as low as 10 quid, up to… over 100 pounds).

Have a nice weekend and a nice shave
