He succeeds Andreas EULE, CEO of Cordenka, whose mandate has expired but who will remain a member of the Board as past-president.
Andreas Eule comments, I am delighted that Giulio Bonazzi has been elected to follow me as CIRFS president. He has been actively involved in CIRFS for several years, most recently as its vice president. He has a very successful record in the industry, leading a successful company which is the global leader in its products. Giulio Bonazzi understands the positive contribution that CIRFS makes to the industry’s development and how CIRFS can help the industry meet its current and future challenges.
Bonazzi adds, “Andre Eule has given a strong lead to CIRFS in his period as president. In showing how is can continue to play a key industry role by constantly adjusting to changing needs, I look forward to carrying on this mission over the next three years. The current situation of the manmade fibers industry in Europe and also globally is impacted by a recent economic showdown. However, the European industry, the second largest in the world, has strengths in innovation, quality and sustainability which provide the base for its future development.”
CIRFS is an association representing Europe’s €11 billion manmade fibers industry.
