Ingredients manufacturer Lycored has appointed Shirley Cohen as its new CEO, effective immediately.
Cohen succeeds Rony Patishi-Chillim who is taking up the role of VP finance at Lycored’s parent company, ADAMA.
Newly appointed Cohen is said to bring over two decades of management experience in multinational companies to her new position.
Prior to joining Lycored, Cohen spent 12 years as a member of the executive management team at Eden Springs International.
As COO of the company, which provides water and coffee solutions to workplaces, Cohen is said to have expanded existing markets and developed penetration into new ones through organic growth, and merger and acquisition activity. Most recently, she was SVP for Eden Spring’s south European region.
According to Lycored, Cohen will oversee ‘major’ expansion at the company in her new role. Lycored recently announced that it had more than doubled its tomato-based lycopene production following a three-year multi-million-dollar investment.
“This is a time of huge opportunity in the nutrition, food and beauty-from-within industries,” said Shirley Cohen, CEO at Lycored.
“But even more importantly, I’m excited to be joining a company with a genuine commitment to innovation and a fantastic team of dedicated professionals. These are the seeds of growth.
“I’m looking forward to working closely with Lycored’s partners and customers, supporting continuing growth, addressing future challenges and further building Lycored’s reputation and capabilities.”
