Ventec International Group has announced that Thomas Michels, Managing Director, Ventec Europe, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the EIPC, effective immediately. Michel's appointment expands the Board to 15 members from around Europe who, as a group, continue to accurately reflect the role of the institute throughout the value chain of Europe's electronic packaging and interconnection industry.

"Thomas's extensive experience in the electronics manufacturing industry will add a valuable perspective to our Board of Directors," said Alun Morgan, Chairman of the EIPC. "We appreciate his willingness to serve as a director and look forward to benefitting from his contribution towards the future growth and direction of the EIPC."

"Over the past 10 years, Ventec has built a strong foothold in Europe with fully equipped service centers and almost 50 employees. It is a great honor to be elected to the Board of Directors of the EIPC and a reflection of our continued commitment to the European market," said Thomas Michels.

Michels is managing director at Ventec Europe and a shareholder of Ventec International Group. In his role as managing director, he has overall responsibility for all European operations, supply chain and sales & marketing activities as well as leading the company's global non-CCL/consumables business. His operational responsibilities also extend into India. In 2003, Michels founded TMT Trading GmbH, a leading global distributor of flexible laminates (ThinFlex/Arisawa) and drill materials, which merged with Ventec International Group in 2016 to offer a one-stop-shopping solution for Ventec’s European and American customers. Prior to these roles, Michels worked for Cimatec and Du Pont. He is an active member of the steering committee/board of ZVEI's PCB und Electronic Systems division (German association for manufacturers, which represents the interests of the high-tech industry) and a regular presenter and keynote speaker at important European industry events.
