The FEIBP held its annual General Assembly as a virtual meeting on October 15, 2020, and Peter Langenegger (Ebnat AG, Switzerland) stepped down as president after serving a three-year term. Andrew McIlroy of Perlon GmbH was welcomed as the new president and is the first president to represent the suppliers’ section of the federation. McIlroy is well-known and much respected for his commitment to the FEIBP and has been a board member for many years. He is the sales and marketing director at Perlon and will serve a two-year term as president.
The General Assembly is part of the annual FEIBP congress, but the congress had to be postponed this year due to COVID-19. As an alternative, the GA was held online and with strong attendance, the European brushware community was able to exchange views and opinions on the impact of COVID-19.
The 62nd FEIBP Congress is scheduled for September 22-25, 2021, in Prague (Czech Republic).
