Wolfgang Göbel, Chief Sales Officer, Horst Mosolf, has been elected President of the Association of European Vehicle Logistics (ECG).
Göbel brings more than 36 years of relevant industry experience to his new role and has served as ECG Vice-President for the last seven years.
Mats Eriksson, CEO, AB SkandiaTransport, another long-term board member, assumes the role of Vice-President. Eriksson previously served as Treasurer.
Elections were held on May 26 at the 20th annual General Assembly of ECG which was convened at the Grand Hotel Dino in Baveno, Italy. Automotive Purchasing and Supply Chain attended the event.
A record attendance of some 130 delegates elected the new board and also celebrated outgoing President, Costantino Baldissara, Commercial, Logistics & Operations Director, Grimaldi Group. Baldissara steered the association through some of the most turbulent times the industry has ever seen during his remarkable seven-year presidency.
Board members serve a one-year term at ECG and the following stood again and were duly re-elected: Maximilian Altmann (ARS Altmann AG); Costantino Baldissara (Grimaldi Group); Michael Bünning (BLG Automobile Logistics); Krzysztof Dakowicz (Adampol); Marcos Duato (Flota Suardiaz); Mats Eriksson (AB Skandiatransport); Wolfgang Göbel (Horst Mosolf); Ömer Gürsoy (Me-Par); Christian Lang (DB Cargo Logistics); and Ray MacDowall (ECM Vehicle Delivery Services).
Peter Borrmann (STVA) and Konrad Zwirner (Hödlmayr International) stood down from the Board and four new candidates stood and were elected, Marc Adriansens (ICO); Olivier Benguigui (STVA); René Eisbrich (Lagermax) and Jon Kuiper (Koopman Logistics Group). This brings the total board up to 14 members.
