Joyce will report to CFO Liz Doherty. He has been serving as director of financial reporting for the company. Prior to joining Reckitt Benckiser in 2002, Joyce worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Meanwhile, Tom Corran is returning as a part-time consultant for a year, beginning in August, to facilitate Joyce's transition into the role. Corran retired from the IR post in 2008.
