Walker & Company Brands Has Been Acquired By Proctor & Gamble
Walker & Company, the parent company of men’s grooming company Bevel, and women’s beauty line, Form, has been acquired by Proctor & Gamble. Founder Tristan Walker broke the news earlier today with a write-up on Medium.
Walker & Co. was founded on November 16, 2012 with one goal in mind: to make health and beauty simple for people of color. Our desire has been to serve the needs of our community for generations to come and we’ve been unwavering in our commitment to do so. Since launch, we’ve developed brands in BEVEL and FORM, we’ve scaled our partnerships with some of the most beloved retail brands in the world, and we’ve even secured an exciting partnership with the Navy.
Today, I’m excited to share that exactly six years later, on November 16, 2018, we signed a deal to accelerate that vision: We are merging with Procter & Gamble, one of the largest and most consumer-centric packaged goods companies in the world.
Hopefully with this new transition underway we will continue to see authentic engagement and well-designed products. Best of luck to the Walker & Company team.
