On 2 December 2020, FEM members unanimously re-elected Jos De Vuyst, CEO of Stow, as President of FEM. He will serve a second mandate until 2022. Maurizio Tansini, Head of Konecranes Industrial Cranes Italy and President of the Italian association AISEM, was elected Vice-President.
Reacting to his re-election, Jos De Vuyst said: “I am grateful to FEM members for the trust placed in me for a second mandate. The past few months have been unprecedently challenging. Going forward I intend to focus my efforts on supporting our industry towards post-corona recovery. As major regulatory developments lie ahead of us, FEM will have a vital role in ensuring a supportive framework for our companies.”
In addition to Maurizio Tansini, Rémy Jeannin, President of Savoye, Noblelift Group, joins the Board. Finally, two former Presidents of FEM, John Meale (Thorworld) and Jan van der Velden (Vanderlande), stepped down after many years of active engagement in FEM. Members expressed their profound gratitude for their invaluable contribution to the organisation and to the European materials handling industry.
