Kalsec appoints Europe MD

new-jobNatural spice and herb flavour extracts, colours and antioxidants company Kalsec has appointed James Smith as the new Managing Director for its European Operations as of September 1. Smith most recently worked for EDME Food Ingredients as sales director. An Imperial College London graduate, Smith is the president of the Association of Bakery Ingredient Manufacturers (ABIM), chairman of the European Malt Products Manufacturers Association, and a member of both the London and South East Millers Association and the British Society of Baking.

“James is going to be a great asset to Kalsec,” said Dr. Scott Nykaza, Kalsec president and chief operating officer. “His experience in the food and food ingredient markets of Europe, Middle East and elsewhere are ideal for this expanding operation.”

Smith replaces Kalsec executive vice president Paul Filby, who started the European Division for Kalsec in 1995. Filby will be leaving Kalsec after more than twenty years with the company.

“We thank Paul for his many years of dedicated service and recognise the significant impact he has made on expanding the company’s global presence,” said Nykaza.
