BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Cefic (European Chemical Industry Council) said that it has elected Marco Mensink as its new director general of the Confederation of European Pulp and Paper Industries (CEPI) representing pulp, paper and board producing companies across Europe as well as paper mills, effective 15 March.

He will take over from Hubert Mandery, who has led the association since 2009 and retires as of 30 April.

“We are pleased to welcome Marco Mensink on board and are confident he will build on the success of Hubert Mandery in establishing Cefic as the central hub for Europe’s chemical industry and linked associations,” said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, president, Cefic.

A Dutch national, Mensink has been director general of CEPI since 1 June 2014, an organisation he joined in 2006 as energy and environment director as an expert on emission trading, renewables and energy legislation. Earlier he worked at the Royal Netherlands’ Paper and Board Association, representing the Dutch industry in Brussels.
