The Monell Chemical Senses Center (Philadelphia) has elected Dwight Riskey chair of its board of directors. Riskey succeeds the late Martin Meyerson, who served as Monell board chair from 1993 until his death this past June. Riskey recently retired from his position of senior vice president, Consumer & Customer Insights at PepsiCo after a 25-year career. He currently is principal of Riskey Business Solutions, LLC, a strategic marketing consulting firm.
Of the appointment, Riskey said, “Monell is world renowned for its scientific contributions. My job and the job of our entire board of directors are to facilitate the pursuit of that science. An important challenge will be to manage Monell’s continued growth and define its scientific impact in a rapidly changing environment.”
