EDANA leader joins DuPont.

Paul Dewingaerden has resigned from his post as secretary general of the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA), Brussels, Belgium, to work for DuPont Medical Fabrics. Mr. Dewingaerden, 49, brings more than 25 years of experience to his new role as business manager, medical fabrics, Europe, Middle East and Africa, for DuPont. In addition to his role at EDANA, which he assumed in 2001, Mr. Dewingaerden, has worked for American Hospital Supply (now Cardinal Healthcare) and Dexter Corporation (now Ahlstrom).

In his new role, he will manage DuPont's European medical business including Sontara Softesse spunlaced fabric and Suprel medical fabric, which was recently announced as the premiere offering within the new DuPont Advanced Composite Technology platform. He will also lead the introduction of new fabrics tailored specifically to the needs of the European healthcare industry that will be developed under the new ACT platform.

EDANA executives said the trade association has begun the search process for a new secretary general.
