Erwin Wetzel, the European Vending Association's current Deputy Director General, will be the new Director General of the association effective on Jan. 1, 2014.
Wetzel was presented as the new EVA Director General at the EVA Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on November 28, 2013.
Wetzel plans to increase contact with association members and promote further cooperation between the national associations.
Wetzel replaces Catherine Piana, who has managed the Association since 1997. She will continue to serve as a consultant for the EVA, primarily in the development of the association's annual Market Report and the coordination of the EVA Coin and Banknote Group.
Piana and Arnaud van Amerongen, who stepped down after 6 years as EVA President, were both honored at the general meeting by new President Jan-Marck Vrijlandt. Vrijlandt thanked both for their long and successful service to the association.
