Elmar Witten has come into office as Managing Director of the AVK – Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e.V. [Federation of Reinforced Plastics].

He succeeds Dr. Uwe Bültjer, who contributed much to shaping the development of the AVK during the past decade and is now ready to retire from active business.

”Apart from continuing our efforts to enhance the internationalization of the AVK, my new function is to focus primarily on developing and providing new services to our member companies, specifically in the form of seminars and advanced education“, Dr. Witten said about his future term of office.

Before he accepted his new function with the AVK, Dr. Witten spent eight years with the TÜV Rheinland, where he initially managed and expanded the seminar business on behalf of the TÜV Rheinland Akademie [Academy of the Rheinland Technical Control Board] to cover all of Germany. His most recent employment was with the TÜV [Technical Control Board] Rheinland, where, in his role as a corporation-wide Acting Innovation Manager, Dr. Witten was responsible for the development of new products and services. Dr. Witten started his professional career as a project manager with a company organizing conferences, after which he supervised the Manager Academy on behalf of a seminar-organizing company.
