Frankfurt, Germany —The German Flat Panel Display Forum (DFF), a working group within the German Engineering Federation, elected its new board of directors during the General Assembly of the DFF in Frankfurt June 20, 2007. The new board confirmed the two presiding chairmen, Peter Bullen and Robert Isele, for a second term in office, and amended the bylaws to welcome non-German companies as members.
Peter Bullen is international sales director at i-sft GmbH in Gundersheim, which produces customized and ruggedized flat panel displays with a patented back-light source for industrial and avionic applications. Robert Isele is manager for driver information concepts and display technologies at the BMW Group in Munich.
The DFF stressed its mission of representing the display community as a whole in its latest amendment of the bylaws. “We always had non-German members,” Isele says. “Now our bylaws explicitly welcome European and international companies.”
Peter Bullen, DFF chairman for applications, will dedicate his second term of office to a stronger integration of present and ongoing members. “We want to invite our members to be more involved and to work actively. Their input and ideas are most welcome to form the future DFF activities.”
The German Flat Panel Display Forum is a member-driven association of flat panel display material and component suppliers, equipment manufacturers, display manufactures, system integrators, end users, and research institutes. It currently represents 66 member companies.
