Cites energy revolution and digitalisation as industry’s biggest challenges

aug2014-atlarge01At its delegates meeting held in Munich on June 25, the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI) named Michael Ziesemer, CEO of Endress+Hauser, as its new President, after serving as the Association’s Vice President for seven years, the company announced.

In his capacity as President, Ziesemer is tasked with representing the interests of the electrical and electronics industry at the highest levels of business and politics, the announcement added.

Citing the energy revolution and digitalisation as the industry’s biggest challenges, Ziesemer said: “Assuming the association’s top honorary office will be a wonderful task for me, given that this industry is marked by so many innovations. The ZVEI represents around 10% of the German manufacturing industry. Every third innovation from the manufacturing sector has its roots in the electrical and electronics industry. That’s why it plays such a significant role in creating jobs and prosperity in Germany…. The ZVEI can promote the dialogue and set the processes in motion that will help companies and society best prepare for this transformation.”

Endress+Hauser informed that in 2013 Nikolaus Krüger, Corporate Director, Sales and Marketing, at Endress+Hauser, was elected to the ZVEI executive committee that is responsible for the area of Measurement Technology and Process Automation. “We’re proud that two of our executive leaders are in a position to share their know-how with this important German industry association,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group.
