The re-election, according to ETRMA Secretary General Fazilet Cinaralp, comes at time when the industry and society are asking for "a strong commitment to contribute to the post COVID-19 recovery plan."
"The tire and rubber industry has a relevant role to play and I cheer the opportunity to assure continuity in the key actions we are bringing forward," she said.
According to Ms. Cinaralp, the industry has untapped capacity to contribute to "greening mobility" and the circular economy, while leveraging on the tire-as-a-service regulatory framework.
Mr. Annunziato, vice president and senior adviser at Bridgestone Europe, took the helm at ETRMA in January 2018. He has a master's degree in mechanical engineering from Rome University "La Sapienza" and is specialized in transport and infrastructure technology.
