New York, N.Y., February 1, 2002 --- Carlos A. Lobbosco, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Officer of the Board of Directors, will retire from International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (“IFF” or “the Company”) effective May 7, 2002, the day of the Annual Shareholder's Meeting. Mr. Lobbosco joined the Company in 1975 and has held a range of senior management positions, serving as President of the worldwide Fragrances division just prior to assuming his current role.
