Arndt Bake | Treasurer

”If you ask me: “Where do you come from?” my answer will be: “I am a European, living in Schleswig-Holstein, which is in the far up North of Germany.”

Personally, I am a strong believer in Europe, because only if Europe joins its forces we will be able to shape a successful future for our continent. From a business perspective, I love to work at the interface between people and technology. I enjoy identifying technical and market changes in order to help organizations in the change process to adapt to new market structures. For more than 20 years I am thrilled about the possibilities of Machine Vision and Computer Vision and I would love to continue my work at the Board of Directors of the EMVA.”
