The general assembly of Euratex, the European apparel and textile confederation, has nominated Klaus Huneke as new president of the confederation for a two-year term beginning January 2017.

Huneke will succeed current Euratex president Serge Piolat. He has a wide international experience in the textiles industry. He made a remarkable career at Heimbach, a large technical textiles producer in Germany. Having started his path as an engineer in the petrochemical industry in 1990s, he joined Heimbach where he was a CEO until his retirement.

Huneke has been engaged in numerous actions aimed to advance German industry, especially been the president of the German textile employer’s association since April 2000. He has also been actively involved in representation of textile and clothing industry at the European level, acting as a board member and vice-president treasurer of Euratex.

“I believe Piolat made a solid foundation for a new way Euratex functions to better represent our industry. My intention is to continue this fruitful work directed in three strategic areas: trade and industrial policy, innovative industry and responsible businesses,” said Huneke.

As an experienced industrialist, Huneke has an ambitious plan for his upcoming presidency. He believes Euratex shall continue being a bridge between the companies in the textiles sector and the European institutions, namely the European Commission and the European Parliament.

At the same time, Euratex will keep informing the European textile companies how to better benefit from the initiatives designed at the EU level.

Euratex general assembly also nominated Serge Piolat (UIT, France) and Rusen Cetin (ITKIB, Turkey) as vice-presidents and Alberto Paccanelli (SMI, Italy) as its vice-president treasurer for the upcoming two-year term. (RKS)
