”For 20 years, I am fascinated by Machine Vision as one of the key technologies and innovation drivers of the 21st century. The international Machine Vision industry is blessed with many small and medium-sized enterprises, which develop and produce outstanding products for various target markets. Such as my company Vision Markets, I am eager to dedicate my work at the EMVA board to making Machine Vision companies thrive, globally.
In line with such mission, I will support the EMVA in providing its members with competitive advantages. EMVA members shall benefit from enhanced access to their target customers, shared market intelligence as well as facilitated know-how exchange and collaboration.
Since my business activities are by 80% international and by 50% outside Europe, I would also like to add my global view to the design of a sustainable growth strategy with the EMVA board and support with the acquisition of new members from my client base and personal network across Europe, North America, China, and Israel”
