New board and member of the year announced by CRN

During the CRN‘s annual general meeting, recently held in Switzerland , two EMEA representatives were elected to the global representative committee of CRN, the leading network for Simultaneous Interpretation suppliers.

Elakustik from Germany was nominated CRN Member of the Year.

This year’s AGM was hosted by Dorier.

New Board

The new board members are: 

  1. Mikail Basoglu from Consys  in Turkey

  2. Renata Papadimitriou from PC Podimatas Audiovisual S.A. in Greece

The Global Representative Committee, also known as the GRC, oversees the worldwide operations of the Network, which now has almost 40 members in 35 countries, on six continents .

Mikail and Renata join the following to make up the full GRC of seven:

  1. Jo Debono from Studio 7, Malta – Chairperson (EMEA Representative)

  2. Gilles Goudreault from Duoson, Canada – Treasurer (The Americas Representative)

  3. Fred Baysinger from ASET, USA – General Secretary (The Americas Representative)

  4. Karel Mulder from Bosch, Netherlands – Bosch Representative

  5. Jeremy Ducklin from Congress Australia, Australia (APR Representative) 

Member of the Year

The CRN Member of the Year is announced each year at the AGM based on a nomination process involving all members.  Above all it recognises an ethical, fair company that has done its upmost to work with other organisations  within the CRN, whilst exceeding the expectations of clients and partners.

This year’s winner was Elakustik from Germany.

Jo Debono, chairperson CRN, comments on the outcomes of the AGM:  “Gathering together each year is vital for a network like ours, with such distant members.  Whilst networking and catching up are an important part to the meeting, it also allows us to learn from each other, re-energise the network and recognise those such as Elakustik who are doing particularly good work in the field and on behalf of the network”

Next year’s AGM will take place in Hong Kong , hosted by Polyglot Translations.
