Versailles, 19 May 2017. During the 60th Annual Meeting of the Eurovent Association in Versailles, France, Francesco Scuderi (Italian, born 1981) has been assigned Deputy Secretary General of Europe’s Industry Association for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies. Scuderi’s assignment is immediately effective and initiates a further generation change within Europe’s leading HVACR sector association. In the upcoming years, the Electrical Engineer is gradually taking over responsibilities of the ongoing Secretary General Felix Van Eyken.

Francesco Scuderi has joined Eurovent in September 2015 as Technical and Regulatory Affairs Manager and Team Leader ‘Process Cooling and Food Cold Chain’. Before joining the association, Scuderi has gained in-depth experience in the HVACR industry for the EPTA Group as Intellectual Property and Regulatory Affairs Engineer. He possesses an extensive knowledge of European Union decision-making and is a well-respected contact person for authorities. Scuderi is also convenor of ISO/TC86/SC7/WG2 and CEN/TC44/WG6 ‘Commercial beverage coolers and ice cream freezers’.

Following his nomination, Francesco Scuderi stated: ‘It is an honour for me to take on a leading role in the Eurovent Association while supporting the unity and advanced technological development of our HVACR industry in Europe and abroad. Eurovent is the most recognised European stakeholder for HVACR technologies, and the Eurovent brand is well-known and respected around the globe. Thank you to Felix Van Eyken and all members for the support.’

Felix Van Eyken, Secretary General of Eurovent, added: ‘With Francesco as my future successor, I am convinced that our members have entered the right path towards a sustainable development. I also believe that he will enjoy the same trust and respect that I have built up over the past decades among our industry and authorities. Me aside, our team around Europe now has an age average of 34 years and I am very happy to see the positive change and level of expertise this adds to our activities.’

In line with the generation change, the Eurovent Association has also updated its corporate identity, with an updated design, homepage, social media portals, and a new newsletter system called ClimaNovela. Furthermore, new procedures and lean measures were introduced in Versailles to increase the association’s efficiency.
