Andreas Eule, CEO of Cordenka, has been unanimously elected by the CIRFS members to take on the role of President. He succeeds Thomas Fahnemann, Chairman of Lenzing, who will leave the manmade fibres industry at the end of 2008 to take up a senior position in another sector.

Thomas Fahnemann commenting on the appointment said, “I am delighted that Andreas Eule has been elected to follow me as CIRFS President. He has been actively involved in CIRFS for several years, most recently as its Treasurer. He has a very successful record in the man-made fibres industry, leading a successful company which is the global leader in its products.

Andreas Eule understands the positive contribution that CIRFS makes to the industry's development, and how CIRFS can help the industry meet its current and future challenges.”

Andreas Eule said “Thomas Fahnemann has given a positive lead to CIRFS in his period as President, in showing how it can continue to play a key industry role by continually adjusting to changing needs. I look forward to carrying on this mission over the next three years.

“The current situation of the man-made fibres industry, in Europe and globally, is adversely impacted by the world economic slowdown. However, the European industry – the second largest in the world – has strengths in innovation, quality and environmental responsibility which provide the base for its future development. CIRFS will continue to work, in a positive way, to help the industry build on its strengths.”
