B O A R D o f DIR E C T OR S Joy Atkinson Director “The fragrance industry represents the combination of science and art. Our industry has the gift and ability to touch consumers’ lives and make their world experience more beautiful and enjoyable. I cannot think of another industry that would deliver this perfect combination of art and science in such a beautiful way.” I joined Firmenich in 1995 after roles in fragrance, cosmetics and fashion at JCPenney, Rich’s Department Stores and Minnetonka/ Tsumura. Now I am in the role of President of Firmenich’s Body and Home Care, North America. In addition to fulfilling work and family, I proudly serve on the Boards of IFRANA, Cosmetic Executive Women, the American Cleaning Institute and the Board of Trustees for the Roxey Ballet Company. Al Bauer Director “To be part of an industry where we blend science and art to create products that enrich everyday life is a privilege.” A fragrance veteran who has held leadership roles in numerous global companies over the course of my career, I’m currently Vice President at Citrus and Allied.
