Elisa Setién to succeed Dr. Uta Jensen-Korte effective 01. September 2016
The European Association of Chemical Distributors Fecc (Brussels, Belgium) has announced the appointment of Elisa Setién as Director General. She will take over from Dr. Uta Jensen-Korte, who has led the association since 2010 and who retires at the end of August, Fecc said in a statement last week.
Ms. Setién, a Spanish national and engineer by profession, will join Fecc on 01. August 2016 for a smooth handover and transition from her current position as Director General at the European Federation of construction Chemicals (EFCC). She began her career at AENOR (Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification), where she held various positions first at the Standardization Division, and afterwards at the International Cooperation Unit, where she was detached to manage EU-funded Technical Assistance projects in the field of Free Movement of Goods (Quality Infrastructure). Since 2008, she worked at EFCC (European Federation for Construction Chemicals), where she was responsible for the overall management of the Federation, representing the industry towards the EU institutions as well as the internal and external stakeholders.
Neville Prior, President of Fecc is quoted in the statement: “As a Board Member and more recently as President of Fecc, it has been a genuine pleasure to work with Uta. Uta has displayed great technical knowledge as well as a strong empathy for all the people that she has worked with. Uta’ s term of office will be remembered for taking Fecc forward with a renewed sense of purpose, as well as for her energy, enthusiasm and dedication. The European Chemical Distribution sector owes her a debt of gratitude indeed. As Uta takes her well-earned retirement, we welcome Elisa Setién to Fecc as the new Director General. Elisa was chosen from a broad and strong field of candidates, and I know she will bring energy to Fecc as well as a strong sense of direction for the future.
