Changes within the FEP management: Endre Varga replaces Filip De Jaeger
As from mid 2006 Mr Endre Varga will take over the secretariat general of FEP from Mr Filip
De Jaeger, who has been active in this function for the past 10 years and will now focus more
on the general management of the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries, CEIBois.
Mr Endre Varga has been working as an adviser to FEP as an employee of CEI-Bois and
Secretary General of EBIA (European Bedding Industries' Association) since 2002. He has a
legal background and prior to joining the Brussels based European Federations he has also
worked for an important multinational as Area Sales Manager for Scandinavia, part of the
Middle East and Eastern-Europe. He is also co-founder and former MD of a family business
company in Belgium.
FEP Chairman Dieter Betz described the change as logical, seen the recent developments
within the parquet business, matching Mr Varga’s competences and considering the
responsbilities held by Mr De Jaeger as secretary general of CEI-Bois. He added that FEP will
continue working within the CEI-Bois office community of European wood and furniture
associations, with Mr De Jaeger remaining available for FEP matters when required.
The FEP members were informed about the switch during the FEP General Assembly held in
Wiesbaden on 26 May 2006.
