Cindy Angerhofer, PhD, executive director of botanical research at Aveda, said, "I have had the pleasure of working with Stefan for nearly 15 years in the natural products industry and academic community. His passion and extensive background as a Swiss pharmacist and PhD phytochemist seem ideal for this new role.
"Stefan has been an excellent mentor and role model for the technical team at Tom's, as well as a competent educator of customers, the trade, and scientific peers," continued Dr. Angerhofer. "The creation of this new position at ABC is an exciting development for the organization, and I have great expectations for Stefan's contributions as the Chief Science Officer."
