Executive committee confirmed in all positions
At the General Assembly of Eumabois, held on 1 November in Brno by the Czech association SVDSZ, the governing body was elected, which is composed as follows:
Jürgen Köppel - President (VDMA)
Luigi De Vito - Vice-President (ACIMALL)
Samuel Hänni - Member of the Board (Swiss Association, HBT)
Wolfgang Rohner - Member of the Board (Austrian Association, FMMI)
Mustafa Sabri Erol - Member of the Board (Turkish Association, AIMSAD)
Erich Zeller - Auditor (Swiss Association, HBT)
The President and CEO of Leitz GmbH & Co. KG, Jürgen Köppel, will continue to contribute his many years of experience in the woodworking industry to the growth and activities of Eumabois. Luigi De Vito, Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department of the SCM Group, enriches the board with his international experience as Vice President. The President and Vice President will continue Eumabois' development work in a positive business environment for the European woodworking industry.
The three re-elected board members Mustafa Sabri Erol (Törk Makine A.S.), Samuel Hänni (Lamello AG) and Wolfgang Rohner (Ima-Schelling Anlagenbau GmbH) round off the team with their industry experience and can count on the support of their respective industry associations. Erich Zeller, confirmed as auditor, brings with him many years of professional experience gained at Lamello and Eumabois and places his expertise in finance and Swiss precision at the service of the committee.
The Board has been re-elected in all offices and is now in its second term of office for the next three years. The Assembly unanimously approved the proposal to re-elect the current Board, thus paying tribute to its important achievements over the past three years.
This was mainly due to the participation of the Association's management in important projects for the future of the European woodworking industry. OPC UA (Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture), Marketing Intelligence Project and ETML (European Tool-Machine Language) are just a few examples of the initiatives in which Eumabois will be actively involved in the coming years. Another central theme is the growing attention paid to machine safety regulations and the international trade fair calendar.
