Euratex, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation, has named Alberto Paccanelli as the new president of the company, and Dirk Vantyghem as the new director general. With the new appointments, Euratex, the voice of the European textile industry, prepares itself to promote and defend the European apparel and textile industry in the years to come.

Paccanelli has a clear vision for the future of the organisation: working together with EU institutions, European and international stakeholders, Euratex will continue to focus on its key pillars – an ambitious industrial policy, effective research, innovation and skills development, free and fair trade, and sustainability, according to Euratex.

With international experience both in the textile industry and management consulting, since 2007, Paccanelli is CEO and shareholder of the Martinelli Ginetto Group in Bergamo, Italy, specialised in high-end home textile products. For many years he has been actively involved in representing the industry at both European and national level, as president (2011-2014) and vice president treasurer (2014-2019) of Euratex, as member of the steering committee of Sistema Moda Italia, and as president of the Italian Technology Platform for Textile and Apparel. Paccanelli will lead the team of Euratex vice presidents Jean-François Gribomont (BE), Gregory Marchant (FR), Rusen Cetin (TR), and Bodo Bölzle (DE).

Vantyghem has over 20 years of experience in representing European businesses, as a director at the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry (EUROCHAMBRES) in Brussels. With an economic background, his expertise relates to international trade, SME development, EU programmes, and economic diplomacy. (GK)
