In a meeting dedicated to reviewing the association’s 2021 figures, validating ambitious projects, and preparing for the future, beyond this year’s final celebrations of its 50th anniversary, the Board of Edana appointed Murat Dogru as Deputy General Manager.
It was also confirmed by the international association serving the nonwovens and related industries, Edana, Brussels/Belgium, that Dogru will take over from Pierre Wiertz as General Manager, from July 1, 2022 onwards. Wiertz will then officially retire after 18 years in this position and a 39-year career at Edana.
Dogru holds an MSc in Advertising and Communications and has over 10 years of association management experience through various management consultancy positions.
The Edana Board also validated several projects in the areas of product stewardship, standardization, sustainability, and advocacy, and was presented with a report on record membership levels (+31% in 3 years), and on the success of the association’s training courses, publications and events in 2021, including the Index 20 last October.
