Record fundraising at OutDoor, new President for EOG

OutDoor 2009 in Friedrichshafen proved to be a record-breaker for raising funds to put towards conservation projects. Over €11,000 was raised from the fundraising sale alone, which was held on the EOG Association for Conservation stand each day of the show.   

Meanwhile, at the recent Annual Assembly of the EOG Association for Conservation, members voted in a new President and two new Board members with immediate effect.

Holger Bismann, Managing Director of Patagonia Europe, based in Annecy, France was unanimously voted into the position of President.

Holger will be joined by two new members of the Board of the Association; Didier Maclaine Pont, CEO, Bever Zwersport, in the Netherlands and Tomáš Skala, Eco Project Manager, Rock Point, in the Czech Republic.
