Wiertz named to EDANA's top spot.
A 20-year association veteran has been named general manager of
EDANA, the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association, Brussels,
Belgium. The newly created position replaces the old role of secretary
general, which was vacated last fall when Paul Dewingaerden joined
DuPont's nonwovens team. Pierre Wiertz most recently served as
deputy secretary general. He has a wealth of experience and expertise in
public affairs and issue management in the nonwovens and absorbent hygiene business. "I am taking up this challenge with enthusiasm
and determination," Mr. Wiertz said. "I will do my utmost with
our great Brussels team to ensure that EDANA continues to create the
foundation for sustainable growth for nonwovens, associated industries
and their suppliers."
