Nick Parsons elected as new CECIP President
At the 70th CECIP General Assembly on 5 June Nick Parsons was elected. as new CECIP President. Nick is currently Deputy Chief Sales Officer at Minebea Intec and has extensive experience within the industry. Additionally he was an active member of the UK and Irish weighing federation and SMA in the US. All this made him an excellent candidate for this position.
The election of Nick Parsons means Urs Widmer will step back as CECIP President, a position he held during the last six years. In his last General Assembly as CECIP President Urs Widmer thanked the CECIP members for their support and was glad to leave CECIP in good hands. “It was a great pleasure to be the CECIP President over the last years. I believe we represented the European weighing industry well due to the great support from all CECIP members in the different working groups. I’m confident Nick will be an outstanding CECIP President leading CECIP in a new decade.”
The handover took place during an online meeting and Nick Parsons’ new role is effective immediately. In his speech Nick Parsons mentioned that he was glad Urs Widmer left him CECIP in the position it is currently in. “First of all, I would like to thank Urs for his passion and commitment to CECIP over the last six years. Thanks to his leadership, the activities of CECIP were brought to the next level. I hope to continue the great work started by Urs during my term, including CECIP’s vision for the European Weighing industry by 2030 and our relationships with the various authorities. I am looking forward to the continued cooperation with the CECIP members, the authorities and our international co-operation partners.”
