PARIS — Gerold Linzbach, Symrise’s chief executive officer, said he will not renew his contract with the Holzminden, Germany-based flavors and fragrance firm in October 2009.
“My decision to leave Symrise at the end of my contract has been made for personal reasons,” he stated. “The business remains strong and stable and is performing in line with market expectations. I have given the board my personal commitment to work with my colleagues to continue to develop the business in the meantime and to ensure an orderly hand over to my successor.”
