Firmenich has named Bhavesh Shah, corporate vice president, chief purchasing officer to the company’s direction générale. He is based in Singapore.
Shah, who joined the company in 2011, has transformed the scope and structure of the global purchasing organization to ensure stronger alliances with the business divisions and clients as well as with the group’s suppliers, according to Firmenich.
“We are dedicated to delivering the greatest value to our clients from an innovation and creation standpoint as much as from a service and cost perspective,” said Patrick Firmenich, the company's CEO. "As a member of the direction générale, Bhavesh will be instrumental in strengthening the group’s risk management, operational efficiency and innovation efforts in order to build value for both the company and our clients,” he added.
Prior to joining Firmenich, Shah spent 19 years with P&G where he held several key positions in operations, purchasing and executive management.
