C O M M I T T E E L E A D E R S H I P Co-Chair: Jennifer Cocchiara Associate Director of Global Fragrance Regulatory Data Management at Firmenich “I love the smell of orange and clove. This combination always reminds me of the holiday season; when I was younger, we had a family tradition of making pomander balls with my grandmother to use as scented decorations.” As part of the Global Data Compliance team at Firmenich, I manage the team responsible for translating fragrance-based regulations, industry standards, and customer requirements into operational rules that are used to verify compliance of our fragrance creations. We also collaborate with information services to deliver new and improved tools to the regulatory, perfumery, and sales communities to increase efficiency and support evolving business needs. As I interact with colleagues from different disciplines, I am reminded of a common denominator. The passion for this industry, for our fragrances, for our customers and consumers, is so critical to our successes. I am thankful to turn my passion into my profession, and I look forward to working with the membership in 2018.
