Quest International has promoted Paul Austin to vice president global fine fragrance. Austin began his career at Quest in 1991, and was transferred to New York in 1994 to help establish the company’s fine fragrance presence in the United States. In 2004, Austin was promoted to general manager vice president fine fragrances North America. He will continue in this role, with the added responsibility of global fine fragrance.
Austin’s promotion is a part of a broader reorganization of Quest’s fragrance division. As a part of the first phase of the reorganization, Christian Dussoullier has been named vice president fine fragrance, Europe, Middle East and Africa. Dussoullier joined Quest in 2005 from Firmenich.
