PHILIP BUISSERET appointed the new secretary general of CEI-Bois

Following the decision of Filip De Jaeger to leave CEI-Bois by end of this year the Board of CEI-Bois has appointed Mr Philip Buisseret as new secretary general of CEI-Bois as from 1st January 2013.
Mr Buisseret (50), of Belgian nationality and lawyer by education, joins CEI-Bois from the steel packaging organization APEAL where he is holding the position of managing director. He has a long career in representing and managing industry associations in Brussels, both at national and European level in the services and beverage sector.
Philip Buisseret is very much committed to take on the role of Secretary General of CEI-Bois and support the woodworking Industry in addressing the European opportunities and challenges. “When I heard of this position in the woodworking industry, I did not hesitate for a minute to apply for the job,” says Buisseret. “Wood’s a winner.
It’s a warm, natural and noble material that offers many possibilities for many applications from packaging to construction and from joinery to decorative products.
Wood also has an exceptional environmental profile, which makes it a more sustainable and attractive alternative for other materials. Finally, when managed sustainably, wood offers a solution for global warming and GHG pollution.
It will be most satisfying to convey these positive messages to the European policy makers and markets.
