C O M M I T T E E L E AD E RS H IP Stephanie Blakely Co-Chair Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs, Symrise, Inc. “One of the most satisfying aspects of my career has been the opportunity to work with amazing people and the epitome of my feeling towards working in this industry is clear as I was once asked, ‘You really like this stuff?’ Without hesitation, my response was “I love it!” Jennifer Cocchiara Co-Chair Associate Director, Global Fragrance Regulatory Data Management, Firmenich “I’ve always been captivated by the power of scent. Especially during those unexpected moments when you catch a familiar scent and are instantly transported to another day in another time, unlocking a memory that was once dormant. As an industry professional, I still get excited to meet the talented artists who indirectly had an impact on my life by creating some of my favorite fragrances. I find the compliance aspect of the fragrance industry such an integral part of our successes, and as a consumer myself, I’m proud of our diligent efforts.” FRAGRANCENOTES.ORG 23
