BERLIN — German fragrance and flavors supplier Symrise continues the strategic expansion of its cosmetic ingredients division, boosting its sales force with two new hires.
The company said Monday that Andreas Hofmann will assume the newly created position of regional sales director, cosmetic ingredients, and Marie-Laure Roumiguière is the new head of global account management for cosmetic ingredients for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Hofmann joins Symrise’s main office from German biochemical company Pharma Waldhof, where he was the director of supply chain management. He also previously worked for Beiersdorf. Roumiguière, who will be Paris-based, formerly worked for Cargill.
Symrise said the new employees will reinforce its strategic sales positions in the EAME region and provide tailored services to customers.
In September, the company opened an expanded production plant for cosmetic ingredients at its headquarters in Holzminden, Germany. The 15 million euro, or $16.3 million at current exchange, facility provided a significant boost to the company’s production capacities.
Last month, Symrise cosmetic ingredients division, which is part of the firm’s scent and care unit, brought Arnaud Bellon and Caroline Baptiste into prominent roles.
