FEICA’s President, Steve Kenny, announced that Philip Bruce is confirmed as the incoming Secretary General of the association. FEICA’s current Secretary General, Bernard Ghyoot, is retiring at the end of March 2016, but Philip Bruce will officially assume full responsibilities from 1 March 2016.
Philip joins FEICA following a successful career as Managing Director of Scott Bader in the United Kingdom where he led the company for more than 10 years with production sites across three continents and speciality chemical and adhesive sales globally. Philip states “It is an honour to become Secretary General of this distinguished organisation and to have the opportunity to build on Bernard Ghyoot’s work to deliver the highest possible value for FEICA’s members and the industry as a whole”.
Bernard Ghyoot, FEICA’s incumbent Secretary General OC, has been with FEICA since October 2006 following a long career at Dow Corning where he occupied numerous functions in Europe and abroad, and after running his own management company from 2004. His dedication and commitment to FEICA transformed the association into the voice of the adhesives and sealants industry in Europe.
FEICA’s President, Steve Kenny, adds “We welcome Philip aboard and wish Bernard a very happy and well-deserved retirement after almost 10 years at the helm of FEICA. FEICA is a success story with an undoubtedly positive future. Building on FEICA’s excellent reputation in the public domain as well as with the European Commission and all related bodies, the board and I are confident that Philip will take the association to new heights.”
