The supervisory board of Symrise has extended the contract of Executive Board Member Achim Daub until 2021. The early renewal of the contract will allow the flavor and fragrances giant to ensure continuity at executive board level.

Daub joined the company in 2004 and has held various management positions in the Scent & Care segment in Germany, France and the USA. Since he took charge of the segment worldwide, he has successfully built the company’s global presence in fragrances and pushed into expansion in high-growth areas, such as cosmetic ingredients.

Dr Thomas Rabe, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, said, “Achim Daub has successfully expanded the global fragrance activities of Symrise AG in recent years and demonstrated foresight in diversifying the portfolio. We are therefore very pleased to reaffirm his role as a member of the Executive Board and look forward to continuing working with him in the future. By doing so we ensure the continuous and dynamic development of our business in the interests of our customers, employees and shareholders.”
