EMVA General Assembly Elects Extended Board
During the General Assembly on 11 June in Athens, Greece, the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) elected Jochem Herrmann, co-founder and Chief Scientist of the Dutch camera manufacturer Adimec as the new President of the EMVA. Herrmann has been EMVA Board member since 2013 and takes over the presidency from Toni Ventura-Traveset (Datapixel, Spain), who has been the dedicated leader of the association through a phase of transition.
Furthermore, the EMVA members elected an extended Board of Directors during the General Assembly. New members of the Board are Dr. Kai-Udo Modrich, Managing Director of Carl Zeiss Automated Inspection, and Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne, who heads the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing of Heidelberg University. The EMVA members also confirmed the previous Board members Gabriele Jansen (Vision Ventures, Germany), Michel Ollivier (Tiama, France), Toni Ventura-Traveset (Datapixel, Spain) and Dr. Jean Caron (Euresys, Belgium). Michel Ollivier is new EMVA Vice President, and Dr. Jean Caron takes over the position as treasurer. Dirk Käseberg (Mettler-Toledo Garvens, Germany) has resigned from the Board to concentrate on increased responsibilities in his company, but will continue to work closely with the EMVA Board in a less formal manner.
