EU – In the scope of a General Meeting in Paris, the members of the European promotional products umbrella association, EPPA (European Promotional Products Association) proposed structural changes that were accepted by all of the participating members: In future, the position of the EPPA President will be carried out by one of the Board Members of a national industry association. The function of the CEO will be turned into a management supporting position and the EPPA Board will control the day-to-day management of EPPA.
Gabriel Moese, President of the Spanish/Portuguese industry association, FYVAR, was proposed as EPPA President and he duly accepted this function. Thomas Hendriksen still holds the operational role of CEO and remains a Board Member. He will work closely together with Gabriel Moese, who he reports to.
