New Naturex CEO Olivier Rigaud: "I ​​am delighted and very proud..."

26-year food ingredients veteran Olivier Rigaud is the new CEO of French herbal extracts leader Naturex, moving from tate & Lyle, where he has been the chair of Specialty Food Ingredients since 2010.

Naturex said he had the, “passion and dynamism” to take the helm of the world’s biggest botanicals player.

Thierry Lambert, who has performed the role since the 2012 death of founder and CEO Jacques Dikansky in September 2012, and worked with Dikansky over the company’s 20+-year history, stays on in an executive role.

"I ​​am delighted and very proud of the opportunity given to me to integrate Naturex, this international group already marked by many successes, and always ambitious; I hope to contribute in this new feature to future success,” Rigaud said.

Dikansky founded Naturex in Avignon, France, in 1992 and after a series of acquisitions and developing a broad herbal extract portfolio, turned it into the biggest player in the world, with turnover of about €250 million.

His business acumen saw him ranked as one of the 500 most wealthy men in France.
