O’Byrne is an established financial executive with decades of experience driving sustainable growth and overseeing transformation strategies for international consumer retail businesses.

“On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to thank Ed, Stephen and Matthias for their many contributions to IFF,” said Dale Morrison, Chair of the IFF Board. “As directors, each has helped oversee the development of IFF’s refreshed growth strategy as we’ve become an even stronger partner for customers across the global value chain for consumer goods and commercial products. It has been an honor to work alongside these three leaders and I wish them all the best in their next chapters.”
“It has been a privilege to serve on the IFF Board as the company has established itself as the industry’s premier partner through the transformative combination of DuPont’s Nutrition and Biosciences business,” said Ed Breen, Director of the IFF Board. “Both the IFF Board and leadership team have taken strong action to position the company for long-term profitable growth and significant value creation, and I look forward to seeing all that IFF will accomplish in the future.”
“As we continue to evolve our Board of Directors, I am thrilled to welcome Kevin as an incoming director,” said Roger Ferguson, Incoming Chair of the IFF Board. “Kevin brings more than 30 years of retail and consumer goods experience to the IFF Board and a proven track record overseeing numerous multinational finance initiatives and successful business integrations. I am confident that his expertise and international perspective will be critical as we capture new growth opportunities, execute on our productivity initiatives and optimize our portfolio.”
