Fragrance Notes ISSUE 1, 2018 - Page 17

B O A R D O F D I R E C T O R S Andy O’Shea Director “I love the smell of fresh mint, garden mint in particular, as the odor takes me straight back to my childhood in England, where in almost every garden (or ‘back yard’ in America), the mint grew wild and was used for cooking Sunday roasts. As an avid cook at home, I use mint with a variety of dishes, and when I crush the leaves, it brings back so many memories of my youth.” Since joining Berjé a little over two and a half years ago, my role is diverse and continually evolving, much like our company and the industry in which we serve. I am primarily engaged in sales, to build and enhance our long-term relationships with our clients, to widen our presence and reach across all platforms of our area of operations. This continual evolution of our industry is both fascinating and exciting to me, and it’s true to say that we won’t be getting bored anytime soon! Christian Seufert Director “I love the smell of a fresh thyme sprig. This smell reminds me of my grandmother’s gravy and many special family festivities.” Since August 2015, I am heading BASF’s global aroma ingredients business. Maintaining an open and trusting collaboration with all business partners and a great team spirit across organizational boundaries are prerequisites for our future success. In this spirit, I will also contribute to the continuing success story of IFRANA. FRAGRANCENOTES.ORG 17
