B O A R D O F D I R E C T O R S Kelli Heinz Director “I love the smell of Osiria rose. It is a very pretty hybrid of tea rose, and actually is my signature scent, as one of Bell’s perfumers created a custom fragrance for me based on the unique smell of Osiria rose.” I am currently the Director of Marketing & Industry Affairs at Bell Flavors & Fragrances. In my role, I am responsible for coordinating Bell’s global marketing teams in North America, South America, Asia Pacific, EMEA, and APAC, with a primary focus to establish communication and marketing networks between these responsible markets to identify future trends and forecasts for research and development to implement and then market to the sales force. As the Director of Marketing, I launched Bell’s official trend program, “Spark: Ignites Creativity, Inspires the Senses” in 2015 to promote the latest flavor and fragrance trends through Bell’s unique trend curation under the “Spark Process.” In addition to my role with IFRANA, I also proudly serve on the WFFC Chicago Chapter as Treasurer and as the Program Committee Chair for FEMA. With a Master’s in communication specializing in journalism from DePaul University, I am now enrolled in an executive program for leadership at Harvard Business School, to be completed in 2018. Ken Marenus Director “Our sense of smell opens the door for connection with our memories, emotions, and experiences. The key to that door is fragrance. I love that, in addition to its inherent beauty, fragrance also holds the possibility to trigger unlimited connections and reflections that enrich our lives.” After earning my PhD at UCLA and completing a post-doctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins University, I joined the Estée Lauder Companies in 1986. Today, I am Senior Vice President of Product Integrity and Regulatory Affairs Worldwide. Previously, I have served as Chair of the international and technical committees of the Canadian Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association and Chair of the Scientif ic Executive Committee of the Personal Care Products Council in the United States.
