Richard Pisano Jr. presented meeting notes from an earlier FMA incarnation, noting that the organization’s transition to IFRA North America is part and parcel of a tradition of change within the industry.

This year’s Fragrance Materials Association (FMA) spring dinner served to honor the contributions of key members and usher in the era of International Fragrance Association (IFRA) North America. Bill Troy (Firmenich) received the Eric Bruell Distinguished Service Award for his efforts, while Richard Pisano Jr. thanked the FMA on behalf of his father, Richard Pisano Sr. (Citrus & Allied Essences), for the honor of the Special Lifetime Achievement Award. Meanwhile, Enrique Brito outlined M&A activity over the last decade, including key considerations for deals.
