  Rakesh Kapoor (born 4 August 1958) is an Indian businessman, Chief Executive of Reckitt Benckiser plc, a British multinational consumer goods company, the world's largest producer of household cleaning products and a major producer of consumer healthcare and personal products.

Kapoor took over as CEO on 31 August 2011 from Bart Becht, who had been in post since the company was created in 1999 through the merger of Benckiser with Reckitt & Colman.

Kapoor was educated at Modern School, New Delhi, India.

Kapoor has a BSc in Chemical Engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, and an MBA from XLRI- Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur, India.

Following pressure from the Financial Services Authority, Reckitt Benckiser belatedly admitted in October 2012 that in 2010 Kapoor had secured a loan against £6m worth of shares in the company. Such undisclosed loans are considered more likely to distort an executive's behaviour than borrowings that are open and known to all. This issue rose to prominence in 2008 when Carphone Warehouse co-founder David Ross had to resign after undisclosed use of £201 million in shares as collateral came to light.

Kapoor lives in Buckinghamshire, England with his wife and two children. He is an accomplished bridge player and a keen football and cricket fan.
