Robertet promoted Robert M. Weinstein, Ph. D. to president of Robertet Flavors USA. He will assume that role in addition to his current responsibilities as president, Robertet Ingredients and chief operating officer, Robertet USA. Weinstein joined the Robertet team in 2012; he succeeds Peter N. Lombardo, who has retired after 40 years of service with the company.

John I. Simons has been promoted to senior vice president, Robertet Flavors USA. In addition to his present responsibilities leading the flavor sales and marketing teams, he will now also lead the flavor creation and development groups. Simons joined Robertet in 2012 and brought over 30 years of experience in the flavor industry to the team.

After a distinguished 40-year career with Robertet, Lombardo was instrumental in driving Robertet’s growth over the years, both as a member of the board of directors and the global leader of the Ingredients Division. 

In addition, he received numerous recognitions from various organizations and customers during his esteemed career. The most outstanding achievement is that he received both the IFRA NA Eric Bruell Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the FEMA Dr. Richard L. Hall Distinguished Service Award in 2013.

Lombardo’s other positions in the industry included: president and board member of the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association of the United States (FEMA) and Fragrance Material Association (FMA); and various long time board memberships for the International Fragrance Association North America (IFRA NA); International Organization of the Flavor Industry (IOFI) and Research Institute of Fragrance Materials (RIFM).
