Held in Zurich on June 24, Epal elected new Presidents, Jarek Maciążek and Dirk Hoferer for the respective period. The 2022 General Assembly of the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL) took place in Zurich on 24 June 2022. The key element of this General Assembly was to bid farewell to the previous President Robert Holliger and elect the new Presidents, Jarek Maciążek and Dirk Hoferer.
The EPAL General Assembly unanimously elected two new presidents, Dirk Hoferer and Jarek Maciążek, on 24 June 2022. The election of the new presidents was necessary as Robert Holliger had declared that he would not run again for the presidency after four terms and twelve years in office.
Robert Holliger, former President of EPAL:
“After twelve years as President of Epal, it was time to pass the leadership of Epal to younger colleagues. I am delighted that Jarek Maciążek and Dirk Hoferer are jointly taking on the responsibility for the Epal Euro pallet pool as Epal Presidents. Not only do they both have a great deal of experience in the field of pallet production, but they also have many years of international experience with the organisation of the Epal Euro pallet pool. As Vice-Presidents of Epal, they have both already been involved lately in every important tasks and decisions. Dirk Hoferer has been a member of the Board of Epal Germany for many years and has been very committed to the development of Epal. Jarek Maciążek has been actively involved in setting up Epal Polska and the successful development of the Epal pallet pool in Poland. I cannot think of better successors.”
Dirk Hoferer, new President of Epal, “We are happy that Robert Holliger will remain a part of Epal in the future as Honorary President. Robert Holliger was actively involved in founding Epal and establishing Epal Suisse. For 30 years, he has invested a great deal of time and energy in the development of Epal with great success. We are deeply thankful to him and to his wife, who often had to be without him. At the same time, we are pleased that Robert Holliger will still be associated with Epal as Honorary President.”
