“By further expansion of our portfolio and geographical presence, we’ll improve our customer focus and business — I’m excited to develop further success for Summa.”

Erwin Vandousselaere, CEO of the Summa Group, added: “We are confident with the appointment of Frederik to managing director. His large experience in managing customer service, engineering, quality assurance and projects, combined with more than 25 years operational experience in a hi-tech, customer-driven environment, guarantees the further growth of our business in the markets beyond these we already interact with.

“Congratulations to Frederik on this new responsibility.”
