Antoine de Riedmatten has worked for 28 years at the company’s Swiss competitor Firmenich, holding positions including director of perfumery for Latin America and most recently as regional director for the Middle East and North Africa. 

For Eurofragance - which recorded 49.7 million euros in revenue up 16% in 2013 - the recruitment of Antoine de Reidmatten falls in line with an internationalization strategy. 

In 2013, the company opened a new subsidiary in Turkey, adding to those already in Dubai and Mexico, which account for 18% of its turnover. In October, Eurofragance also opened offices in Poland. 

To compare, for its 2013/2014 financial year ending on June 30, 2014, Firmenich recorded a turnover of 2.4 billion euros (2.95 billion Swiss francs), up 7%.
