Givaudan has announced that Louie D’Amico will become the new president of its Flavour Divison, succeeding Mauricio Graber, who is leaving the position to become CEO of Chr. Hansen.

The changes to the company’s Executive Committee will take effect from 1 April 2018, and Graber will stay in his role until that time to assist with D’Amico’s transition.

D’Amico is a member of the company’s Executive Committee and is the Head of Flavours Americas, a position he has held since 2010.

He has held various positions at the company since 1989, when he joined as a key account manager at Tastemaker, which was taken over by Givaudan in 1997.

Gilles Andrier, CEO of Givaudan, said: “Louie D’Amico brings a true passion for customers, a deep understanding of consumer trends and markets, as well as strong people management skills to this role.

“He will continue to expand our global market leadership and evolve our flavour solutions to the needs of a fast-changing food and beverage market.”

Andrier also praised Graber’s contribution to the company, adding: “On behalf of Givaudan’s leadership team, I would like to thank Mauricio Graber for his significant contribution in driving the successful development and expansion of our Flavours business.

“Based on his strong customer focus, strategic vision and excellent leadership, he has built a highly performing Flavours business and leadership team over the past 10 years. I wish him great success in his new appointment.”
