Yves Boisdrom Becomes Firmenich’s Chairman

He replaced Vernon Sankey in the post.

PARIS — Yves Boisdrom is the new chairman of Firmenich’s board of directors, the company said.

 

Boisdrom replaced Vernon Sankey in the role effective July 1, after Sankey retired from the chairmanship following five years in the position.

 

“Despite the economic slowdown, [Yves Boisdrom] ensured the resiliency of Firmenich by advocating excellence in execution and tight cost control while maintaining strategic investments into innovation,” the company said in a statement.

 

Boisdrom joined the Geneva-based flavors and fragrance supplier’s board in October 2006 and has served as its vice chairman and chairman of the governance and compensation committee.
