This plays a key role in the company’s strategy, and it is reflected in our daily work.” said Jose Luis Conde, Vice President and Global Segment Leader, Beauty and Personal Care.“We have expanded our leadership team to include a Global Natural’s leader to manage the strategy for natural and naturally derived materials for the future.”
