HOLZMINDEN, GERMANY: The supervisory board of Symrise AG has renewed the contract of chief executive officer (CEO) Dr Heinz-Jurgen Bertram ahead of schedule for a further five-year term until 2022.

Under his leadership, through the focused streamlining of the portfolio and by identifying new market segments, Symrise has substantially expanded its leading position and tapped into market segments beyond the traditional flavours and fragrances business. The reaffirmation of Dr Heinz-Jurgen Bertram as CEO ensures leadership continuity and creates the foundation for further profitable growth.

Bertram (58), who has a doctorate in chemistry, has performed in various management functions at the Bayer Group, the Haarmann & Reimer Group and Symrise since 1985. Since 2003, he has held several senior positions with Symrise and was appointed to the executive board in 2006. Since August 2009, he heads the company's business activities as CEO.

"We've been working with Bertram very successfully and in a spirit of trust for many years. We are therefore pleased to reaffirm his appointment as CEO for a further five years before his contract is up for renewal. He has been part of the executive board for more than ten years and has worked with Symrise for nearly three decades. With the early renewal of Bertram's contract, we are ensuring the group’s continued successful development," said Dr Thomas Rabe, chairman of the supervisory board.
