Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients Appoints New Leadership in Vietnam and the Philippines

We are very pleased to announce that Supaporn Monprasit will be taking over the helms of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in Vietnam while Romain Grosjean will be leading Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in the Philippines starting next year.


A New Leader for Vietnam

Supaporn has been with Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients for over 16 years, successfully leading our petrochemical segment in Thailand. In her most recent role, she was the Department Manager and Regional Portfolio Manager for Performance Chemicals. As a trained chemical engineer with a structured, energetic and results-driven leadership style, Supaporn brings deep technical knowledge as well as a sharp business acumen to her new role in Vietnam.

Supaporn will be taking over from Kenneth Jul Jensen, Managing Director of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in Vietnam. Kenneth will be leaving us in February after seven years in the role. Supaporn has been appointed General Manager of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in Vietnam from October 1, 2020. Following a transition period over the coming months, we look forward to her taking over full leadership from February 1, 2021.

Kenneth has worked in Vietnam for over 20 years and has a thorough understanding of the culture, people and business. We have been extremely fortunate to have benefitted from his experience, thoughtful leadership and professionalism.


Philippines Team Welcomes New Lead

Romain has been with Jebsen & Jessen Cambodia for over eight years, leading the company management with his thoughtful, focused and growth-oriented style. Romain has proved time and again his capabilities of managing challenging circumstances while building a strong, dedicated team. As part of the transition, Romain has been appointed General Manager of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in the Philippines effective Jan 1, 2021.

Romain will be taking over leadership of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in the Philippines from the current Managing Director Jessica Lara, who will be retiring from her role at the end of the year. In her capacity as Managing Director over the last eight years, Jessica has shown a great deal of loyalty and dedication to our customers as well as colleagues, and has helped us build a strong leadership team – ensuring that her legacy outlasts her with continued sustainable, profitable growth in the Philippines.

We would like to thank both Kenneth and Jessica for their years of service and loyalty and wish them the very best in their next journey. We have every confidence they will excel in their new endeavours.
