The Dutch consumer giant--which houses Dove, Hellmann's, Marmite and Ben & Jerry's among its brands--said Mr. Dekkers is stepping down to focus on his responsibilities as founder and chairman of Novalis LifeSciences. He will continue to serve as a nonexecutive director of Unilever.
Mr. Dekkers was appointed as chairman in April 2016.
Mr. Andersen is currently a nonexecutive director and has been on the board since April 2015.
