Frederic Houte to join CIRFS as Director General

CIRFS, the European Man-made Fibres Association, has pleasure in announcing that Mr Frédéric Van Houte will join CIRFS as its Director General in December 2010. He replaces Colin Purvis, who will retire from CIRFS at the end of the year.

CIRFS President Andreas Eule comments:
“CIRFS plays a very important role in the man-made fibres industry, in Europe and globally. For this reason, when Colin Purvis told us of his intention to retire at the end of 2010, the Board of CIRFS, together with the Chairman of the European Association for Textile Polyolefins (which shares a secretariat with CIRFS and of which Colin Purvis is also Director General), was unanimous in agreeing that a successor of the highest calibre should be found.

“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Frédéric Van Houte as our new Director General. He will join CIRFS at the start of December 2010.

“Frédéric Van Houte is currently Secretary General of the European Confederation of the Glass Industries (CPIV) and of two associated bodies, the European Domestic Glass Association (EDG) and the European Special Glass Association (ESGA). He has a great deal of experience in industrial representation to the European authorities, one of the key functions of CIRFS, and in managing an association. He will bring these skills to the service of CIRFS and the European manmade fibres industry.

“The man-made fibres industry is a dynamic sector of the European economy, and I believe that, under the leadership of Frédéric Van Houte, and with the support of the talented secretariat team, CIRFS will maintain and develop its capabilities and the value which it brings to the whole industry.”
