Urs Hauser of Pamasol, also a representative from the Assoziation der Schweizerischen Aerosolindustrie (Switzerland), has been announced as the new president of the European Aerosol Federation (FEA).
Hauser will succeed Gilles Baudin of L’Oreal, also a representative from the Comité Français de Aérosols (France), who has served as president of the FEA for two years.
Hauser is currently senior sales manager at Pamasol. He has dedicated his career to working with aerosol products across the globe, helping to realise small- to large-scale aerosol projects.
“I am proud and honoured to become the new president of the FEA,” said Hauser. “We all have the same interest, high standards on safety and manufacturing, a relationship with authorities at eye level, promote the use of aerosols, and enable the growth of our industry.
“We are also facing challenges like recycling, harmonisation, VOCs, labelling, inhalation issues, just to name a few. Yet, I am convinced that the FEA has the strength and the knowledge to be a solid, long-term partner for discussions with the UN, European, and national authorities in these matters.
“Building on the work undertaken by Gilles Baudin, who will remain on the FEA board, I will tirelessly continue in his footsteps to represent our common interests, defend our industry, monitor legislative developments, connect with other trade bodies, and improve the image of the industry and its products.”
