A global business leader with more than 25 years of international pharmaceutical, ag, and food industry experience, Andreas Fibig has a track record of generating successful results in highly competitive developed and emerging growth markets. His background and extensive network across both European and U.S. ag and food markets will accelerate Indigo’s growth as it catalyzes change in the global ag and food ecosystem.
Before joining Indigo’s Board, Andreas served as Chairman and CEO of International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (“IFF”), an industry leader in food ingredients, beverage, scent, health, and biosciences. For those seven years, he was responsible for worldwide operations, representing nearly $11B in annual revenues and over 24,000 employees. At IFF, Andreas led the company through a transformational period, which included overseeing the integration of DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences into the company, leading the organization’s heralded sustainability efforts (conception and implementation of the “Do More Good” plan), and driving strong sales growth.
Prior to IFF, Andreas served for many years in various senior leadership roles at Bayer AG and Pfizer, giving him extensive experience in international business, product development and strategic planning. Andreas also served on the Boards of Directors for Bunge Limited (NYSE: BG), a leading global agribusiness and food company, and Novo Nordisk (NYSE: NVO), a leading global healthcare company. Andreas brings to Indigo valuable knowledge of the global agricultural trading business and how it operates within the broader ag and food supply chain.
As a member of the board, Andreas provides insight and support as Indigo expands access to its sustainability solutions for Consumer-Packaged Goods and corporate customers around the world.
“I’m excited to join the Indigo board at this pivotal moment. The company’s record of progress in science and technology – successfully producing the world’s first crop of registry-issued ag carbon credits at scale, expanding industry-leading biological seed treatments, and developing second-generation digital merchandising solutions – is helping set the standard for a new class of sustainability solutions,” said Fibig. “I’m looking forward to joining Indigo on their journey and leveraging agriculture to move the needle on ESG responsibility."
