Swiss-Dutch ingredients maker DSM-Firmenich has appointed Vicki Barboiu as head of personal care in North America.
Barboiu joined DSM in 2015 as regional commercial and demand planning manager for personal care in North America before progressing to become regional COO for Nutrition and Care.
Prior to that, Barboiu served over ten years at Symrise’s New Jersey office in Teterboro, where she was a global account director.
DSM-Firmenich said the Penn State University MBA graduate and Chinese speaker has demonstrated “exceptional leadership and expertise” throughout her tenure at the company.
“I am thrilled to join the Personal Care NA team, and I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success,” said Barboiu.
“Together we will navigate new challenges, seize opportunities, and foster business growth with our partners. Through collaboration with our fragrance colleagues, we aim to deliver integrated solutions that meet the diverse needs of our customers.”
Barboiu takes over from Stephen Wood, who has departed DSM-Firmenich for an external opportunity.
