A.I.S.E. re-elects Nadia Viva President

During its annual General Assembly today, A.I.S.E., the International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products, re-elected Nadia Viva, Chief Communication Officer, Global Fabric & Home Care and Baby & Feminine Care at Procter & Gamble, for a second term as A.I.S.E. President (June 2022 - June 2024).  Ms. Viva, the first woman to hold the position, will be joined at the helm by Vice-Presidents Heather Barker (Reckitt) and Hans Razenberg (NVZ/NL), Arndt Scheidgen (Henkel) as Treasurer, and A.I.S.E. Director General Susanne Zänker.

   "When I was first elected, it was the beginning of the Covid lockdowns, and we were unaware of what was yet to come. Now, looking back two years later, I am incredibly proud of the work A.I.S.E. team, member companies and the National Associations undertook to continue serving society, protecting health and hygiene, and enabling the return to normality. In parallel, we have been at the forefront of developments as the European Commission’s Green Deal package unfolds, helping to shape the legislative environment for our industry over the next decade.”

‘I am humbled by the faith the membership has placed in me by re-electing me for a second term at this critical moment. A big thank you goes to the A.I.S.E staff, its members, and the National Associations for their immense contribution these past two years. I look forward to meeting the challenges ahead with the same spirit of persistence, enthusiasm and collaboration." Nadia Viva
