Marie moved to IFF creating flavors for the global accounts and playing a leadership role in innovation as Vice President, Senior Flavorist. In 2012, Marie joined Wild Flavors as their Chief Global Flavorist and shortly after she was promoted to the leadership position of Vice President & Chief Global Flavorist.
