Christoph Widmann, managing director at acontis technologies GmbH, is to be the new chairman of the Marketing Committee at the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG). He takes over for Michael Strauss from SEW-EURODRIVE GmbH & Co KG who has held the position since 2005.
The Marketing Committee deals with all marketing-related aspects of the ETG, such as the organisation of national and international tradeshow participation and roadshows as well as the discussion of current technology topics and their meaning for the global marketplace.
Christoph Widmann was elected unanimously by the attendees. Explaining his motives for accepting the position as chairman of the ETG’s MC, he said: “EtherCAT is a global technology which is well worth further support and development by ETG member companies like acontis.
