1. Changes in PLCopen Board of Management

 

At the annual PLCopen General Meeting major changes in the PLCopen Board of Management were voted upon.

 

Andreas Orzelski of KW-Software GmbH indicated that he wished to hand over his tasks of Secretary of the PLCopen Board of Management to Boris Waldeck, the Sales Director of KW-Software. His proposal was unanimously accepted by the General Meeting.

 

Also Ken Ryan of the Center for Applied Mechatronics at Alexandria Technical & Community College in the USA decided not to extend his membership of the Board of Management. We are glad to announce that Kevin Hull, Application and Deployment Supervisor Motion Control of Yaskawa America Incorporated, has joined the Board of Management.

 

PLCopen sincerely thanks Andreas Orzelski for his dedicated work as Secretary of the Board of Management, and Ken Ryan for all his work done on behalf of PLCopen in the North American market.

 

The PLCopen Board of Management welcomes the new members and is confident to continue the excellent cooperation between the members of the Board.
