With this short note it is my pleasure to briefly introduce myself to you as new Fecc Director General effective 1 June. Some of you may already know me from my previous assignments as Business Manager at BASF SE Ludwigshafen or, more recently in my “Brussels life”, from leading the business associations European Solvents Industry Group (ESIG) and Petrochemicals Europe at Cefic.

All the others I can hopefully meet at the next possible occasion to introduce myself face-to-face and to receive your input on what you expect from Fecc. Any type of comment is highly appreciated, especially on how you see our role here at the secretariat, what are the priorities and key areas you wish us to focus on in the future, what has been working well so far, where you may wish to see some improvements, etc. – let’s connect and together kick-start “the new Fecc”!

A good opportunity to meet and to liaise in person is our upcoming Fecc Congress in Sitges next week, where I hope to see most of our members. Please let me know in case you are available and prepared to squeeze out some minutes from your busy agendas for a personal talk in Sitges.

If you cannot attend the Fecc Congress, I also warmly invite you to provide input either by phone or by mail. 

I look very much forward to working with you!  

Best regards, Dorothee
