Kemin Global and Regional Leadership Teams

As a company that thinks globally and acts locally, Kemin has both global and regional boards of advisors and leadership teams. From these boards and teams, our leadership is able to provide both global and regional strategic direction and insight to support the long-term growth of Kemin.

Kemin is comprised of 14 independently operated business units worldwide, each with its own president, leadership team, industry focus and regional customer segment. This structure helps each business unit act locally, strengthen its expertise in the industry and provide specialized solutions that truly meet its customers’ needs.

While each business unit operates independently, many of Kemin’s insights, best practices and breakthroughs can be shared and applied across the company. This allows us to continually evolve, improve and strive toward our shared vision of improving the quality of life.
