Dear CECE members,
â€œNew Secretary General at the helm of CECEâ€ said the press release that CECE issued this week, marking an important moment in the existence of the association. After a twelve-year tenure as Secretary General of CECE in Brussels, Ralf Wezel has moved back to Frankfurt, entering a new role within VDMA. And I have joined the Brussels team, on the first of July, to represent the European construction equipment sector towards the EU institutions and facilitate the smooth running of the association.
I will be picking up where Ralf has left. In the words of Eric Lepine, President of CECE: â€œRalf has strengthened the role and influence of CECE throughout his time with the association.â€ That role is bound to increase even further.
EU legislation has a direct impact on the ability of the sector to stay competitive. I look forward to working together with you, CECE members, as well as with the partner associations and other stakeholders to make the industryâ€™s voice heard and pursue common goals.
Sigrid de Vries,
