The British Society of Perfumers (BSP) has appointed Kate Williams, creative perfumer at Seven Scent (part of the PZ Cussons group), as President.
The former Vice President will take over from Peter Whipps, who will remain an active member of the Council, while Firminech’s Wessel-Jan Kos will step into her shoes as Vice President.
“I am very proud to represent such a creative and inspiring industry. The fragrances we create are enjoyed and experienced by consumers around the world every day; my aim is to raise the BSP’s profile and promote what we do in a positive way,” comments Williams.
On the new President’s agenda are the development of BSP-accredited fragrance training session and educational workshops and championing the BSP’s annual fragrance awards.
