Below-the-line trade body FEDMA (Federation of European Direct Marketing) has elected a new chairman.

Ara Cinar from German media giant Betelsmann will take the chair, replacing Holger Albers from German direct marketing body DDV.

Cinar said he planned “to strengthen the networking functions of FEDMA and to ensure that the lobbying at the European level continues to be successful and well resourced.”

Five vice-chairs were also chosen: outgoing chairman Albers, Robert Hilty, James Kelly, Marc Lolivier and Christian Renard.
